 All of my life
I have been searching 
As i swim across the great river
Of a faired and tinted Negros 
In all corners of the cardinal

Over and over, my heart beat
Unto my bone that lies in the valley of bones 
Every eyes seem to open and close 
But this one tends to open widely 
Many bones i have picked along the way 
in a search for my lost ribs

Gallantly with good gesticulation
 my mouth talks like a parrot 
Even deep into the nerve senses
no one was found to dance to the beat of my 
and all of my eyed eyes tends to close in the 
In searching and researching 
My legs is set to search
For as many repeated times 
Until i find the one that must dance 
To the beat of my heart...
