I had a bass line first that I created these words to fit. It reads like child story, but I'm curious if you'll get the same kind of rhythm.

 Sit down on this boat melting head fits the calling and smoke rises up through the cave
 
Humanity wasting I tell you this wasting but words cannot get to the wave
 
Now cave more like outer space up and down shining its dream seeping up into dream
 
A dream I am living they’re chasing and spilling as smoke conquers all that is seen
 
Cannot you see?
I can’t speak at all
 
Implore you stand up man and swim for the sand as land rests just beyond the reeds
 
They stormed out of Indy back faced tortured Mindy cold killing with surgical needs
 
Here smoke is what motions my purpleous potion to bring velvet ferns once again
 
Here smoke is what motions my purpleous potion to lead this brigade to the end
 
Cannot you see?
I can’t speak, not at all
