"This is a song my father wrote, and my father did a lot of acid in the '60's so don't listen to the words." 

"Uncle June And Aunt Kiyote"
(written by Kristin & W.J. Hersh)

Lying all night, screaming in pain
Defending the cross in the Belfast rain
Billy saw me at the end of the street
So I lit up my torch and embraced him with heat
Town of Aintab in 340 A.D.
Threw me in a quarry, no way to get free
I called on hate to give me my life
And he came on his black horse, obsidian knife
Happened one night, I was lying in bed
Eyes wide open, I could've been dead
Sky Lady came with her eyes shining bright
And the bears and the Billies 
And the bullies took flight
But I called them all back, and the Sky Lady too
The bears and the Billies
And the bullies, me and you
We laid down our bombs and bows
And drank to their health in the Anatolian plateau
From New Scotland to Calgary
The geese are high and so are we
We don't even need a map
We're way to fast for the highway trap
So hit the road and shine a light
I think we're gonna find that path tonight
Shooting star and the moon is bad
It's the best damn omen that we ever had

Fireworks for you in the ozone snow.
