about

L'Or minus L'Or.

a collection of tracks created
for live use
& a book of poems to accompany.

There is the way that I combine them,
& then there is
the potential for alternatives.

feel free to play, to take what I have provided,
assemble, destroy, imagine, consider.

(Every-thing is incomplete,
except for The-All.)

Love,
Laura

Track Name: the Princess wakes!
on a bed of ash;
broken glass;
bottle caps;
plastic bags.

on a pile of dust;
cigarette butts;
makeup smudged,
& dress undone--

She awoke
like a Princess,
to the vision
of the Sun coming up.
& the Sky embraced it
in colors that were
made of Love.

& She said:

"I have potential. I have potential.
that's all I have.
I have potential. I have potential.
that's all I have.
that's all I have.
that's all I have!"

"and I'm building
My Willpower.
building My Will
to carry on.
I'm building
My Willpower.
building My Will
to see thing's through.
I'm building
My Willpower.
building My Will
to overcome."

"and though My Heart is waking,
this time, it's not for You!"

...

& She waits
for You, still,
at the top
of that hill.
Track Name: joy. (sacred geometry)
I feel
pure
Joy
for
Every-
thing!

(repeat)
Track Name: humans.
I want to love Everyone,
even Those who hate Me.
(could there be any harder work?) (x2)

It's not common,
but I think that It's worthy,
(of All of My hardest work) (x2)

I am not the angel of
Justice.
I am not the angel of
Truth.

I'm a Human.
I'm a Human
& so are you.

I'm a Human.
I'm a Human
& so are you.

...

We're telling people
what We think They want to hear.
(and not how We really feel.
never how We really feel.)

are We thinking too hard?
have We gone too far
(from how We really feel?
how do We really feel?)

I am not the angel of
Mercy.
I am not the angel of
Truth.

I'm a Human.
I'm a Human
& so are you.

I'm a Human.
I'm a Human
& so are you.
Track Name: opening:
Part 1:

let Us
be Here
Together, Darling.
I can see
Your face,
but not Your eyes.

and Where do
You go to
instead? oh,
Where have
You gone,
My friend?

Part 2: (alternate. sometimes silent)

My favorite thing,
is when You're
lying,
beside Me
and You take
My hand
in Yours.

and suddenly,
it's all I need!
I'm in extacy!
Oh! What
have You done
to Me?

Part 3:

holy shit.
holy shit!

Everything is
the same thing,
Oh! Everything is
One thing!
Track Name: "WHAT if?"
I was a Gloomy child:
spent My Time alone. but
I was a Quiet child:
I never threw tantrums.

I was a Sensitive child:
I cried My eyes out.
I am a Sensitive child:
I cry My Heart out.

--maybe I'm a Dreamer,
am I the only one?

what if I don't want to fight?
what if I just want to:
lay beside You
and swim through Your
lovely Light?

what if I don't want to fight?
what if I just want to:
Know the Real You,
and pierce through Your
Disguise?

Anger comes from:
being mistreated; mis-
understood, when We
All deserve
better, baby.

but violence is weakness,
manifest as a tantrum:
insecurity, immaturity,
and fear.

--and the body will fade.
Your dear, sweet body will die.
and What did You
leave behind?

what if I don't want to fight?
what if I just want to:
walk beside You,
into a
better life?

what if I don't want to fight?
what if I just want to:
Love You, with
All My might?
Track Name: I love-2-love
I love to love--
I love to love You.
You can't tell
Me not to,
because My heart
speaks for itself.
My heart speaks
All the time.

I love to love--
You don't even need
to love Me,
because My Love
keeps Me warm.
yeah, My Love keeps
a long time.

It's easier
than You light think.
I don't try to control It.

It radiates
in All directions, and
It's infinite!

I love to love--
You think You can
hurt me, but
don't You worry (baby),
'cause My heart breaks
All the time.

& I love to love--
I love to love You.
can't tell
Me not to,
because My
heart isn't
spoken for.
Track Name: a seance (for nostalgia!)
light the wick--
a wicked wisp
of smoke curls around Your
heavy head.
You jumped straight into
the ocean's undertow, under no
obligation to
see Me again,

but You did. (x4)

so I:
wade water
bubbling up
thigh high,
looking for a sign.
Your house
has no light.
& Your Circle:
of Friends;
of road;
of memories
keep You biting
off Your tail.

I look-- (x6)

wet sopping
washcloth drips on
Your wide forehead,
& Your bedroom
smells like:
paint chips; like
white sticks of chalk.

but hold Your
screen door, lightly.
let It close, silently.
go out in the lightning.

You're soaked to your
knees, Your blue
jeans turned
black, looking
back, You see
Nothing but Darkness,
it seems.

This haunts Me.
haunts Me!
stalks Me!
hunts Me!

You're outside my house,
rain tapping My window--
I toss my pillow.

still the wick is not
black, yet.
You're cold in your
sick bed.
& I toil
for Your
trouble--
not
charred; not
charmed,
either.
Track Name: spells. [a D'edi(fi)cation]
if We said It out loud,
It would cast a spell.
but All is well
All is
well.
Our souls
are speaking.
sometimes I don't under-
stand.

It's a:
conversation;
connection;
communion;
conversion;
convergence;
confluence;
conflagration;
celebration;
consideration.
--there is no coincidence, dear.

& all the
startled/
startling
looks on Their faces
when I
try to explain, oh!
how I feel, no!
They don't understand.
but Oh!
what can I say?
maybe it's better
this way.

there is:
revelation;
relevation;
resolution; &
reservation;
recollection;
retribution;
rumination;
radiation;
reciprocation.
--there is revolution here.

& You are
a beam of light that:
falls around me, that:
focuses on me,
sometimes.
& I'm a
scared animal, oh!
I'm a scared
little thing
sometimes.
but
"All I Want"
is for you to be:
near.
for you to be:
free.
here.

We're:
searching;
showing;
seeing;
sowing;
swilling;
swearing;
swelling;
sweating;
sweetening.
--there is Something between Us, dear.

but
if We say
It
out loud,
It
will cast a
spell~
Track Name: don't go back! (m'allxgoth's)
oh,
You Kids from the suburbs who are:
angry--
your struggle is real.
and when You were in high-school:
You could rebel...

but what do you do now?
what do you do?
oh! (shrugs)
now, what do you do?

don't go back,
don't go back,
don't go back,
to the suburbs.

back Then, you'd hitch a ride with:
your friends; your mom,
to:
the mall.
where You could express YourSelf
in front of:
Them all!

maybe You liked:
all of the People
walking by.
maybe:
it made You
want to die.

don't go back,
don't go back,
don't go back,
to the suburbs!

oh!
float on
in a
senseless sea

until you find:
the Real.

until you find:
Reality.
Track Name: life of the mind. (a L'ament)
the Future is born everyday--
it's a new animal; it's a new thing,
and It changes as it ages.
Everything's possible! (Anything!)

oh, what will Things be like when We're older?
We don't know, but still we're told how to be.
what will this crumbling/crazy world be like when we're older?
It's up to Us, but we just keep reading about it.

but it's so hard to:
take all these books that We've read and:
throw them all into the fire, and
calculate thoughts in Our heads!
&
all of these books did Us well,
&
all of these books gave Us debt...
&
where does it leave Us?

do You remember:
what Nietzsche said?(x2)

that: when You worry It's ruined, It will be.
baby don't worry(x2)
'cause when you worry
it worries me!
baby don't worry!(x2)

don't be afraid of your Fear.
It's your own dragon; It's your own dragon to slay.
And learn what You can
before You go!
but be prepared
to throw it all
away!

and it's so hard to:
take all these books that We've read,
&
throw them all into the fire,
&
calculate thoughts in Our heads!
&
all of these books did Us well,
&
all of these books gave Us debt,
&
where does it leave Us?

do You remember:
what the Doormouse said?(x2)
(He couldn't remember!)

...


&
it's so hard to:
take all these book that We've read,
&
throw them all out the window
&
answer with Our Hearts instead.
&
all of these books did Us well,
&
all of these books gave Us debt,
&
where does it leave Us?

do You remember:
what It was that
You wanted?
