couple strange lines

i lied when i was lying
 and i walked where i was walking.

 i lived when i was living
 and i died when i was dying

 i slept when i was sleeping
 and i dreamt when i was dreaming.

 i lost when i was losing
and i knelt when i was kneeling.

 i drank when i was drinking
 and i fell and kept on falling.

i was holy but never holier
i was strange but never a stranger.
