qayak, siberian shaman, is rescued on the ice.


In the ice and snow he came along, without a name.
He was traveling along the tundra. His spirit was on fire.
It was nice to see some upturned lips: ice is full of frowns.
C'mon and help me out man: I think I'm starting to drown.

Here was a man who hadn't anything to show.
No roof over his head protecting from the snow.
There was a dream of something more to life, but when awake he knew this reality was right.

Making our way across an endless sea of white.
No conversation could drown out the blinding light.
My frugal no whiskey wine or beer: out of emptiness there is no thing to fear.

Jesus, Mohammed and the others fall in line: they're clamoring to emulate this friend of mine.


from Qayak 1, released September 25, 2012
