Here's the text from which the lyrics to this piece are taken:
Your lucky number is 3.14159
Your magic talisman is a thousand-year-old Joshua tree whose flowers blossom just one night each year and can only be pollinated by the yucca moth
Your special time of the day is the moment just before the mist evaporates
You have fire in your blood and sea salt in your tears
Your vision of power is the red-tailed hawk soaring over the shopping mall
The colors of your soul are ivory vermilion, sable, and jade
Your soil of destiny is peat moss
The legendary deed that most resembles the method in your madness is the story of the hero who tames the monster without touching it
You have a secret name that will be revealed to you very soon
Your sweet spot is between the true believers and the scoffing skeptics
Your holiest pain comes from your ability to sense other people's cracked notions about you
Your magic verbs are dig, descend, and disclose
The garage sale item you most resemble is an old but beautiful and sonorous accordion with a broken key
Your mythic symbol is a treasure chest dislodged from its hiding place in the earth by a flood
