Roots with wisdom savvy Share with us the way home Through trunks and branches Dispel the mind syndrome Remind us how to be ourselves Here and now, the moment comes to pass The leaves in the wind The rain in your face The birds in the morning Every grace has its pace The forest is itself Horns and wings beat in unison Life in awe with death As resistance takes its final breath Accept what you don't know Stop running away from your shadow A child follows in his mother's tracks The greatest gift of giving back

Abandon all sadness ye who enter here Let the lesser pain be foregone Let the inner beast have its way It's time for the oddities to become the norm You're here And here you'll stay forever Glued to the edge of your seat To see a show that never misses a beat Look at the marvelous were-gator Leaving speechless every influential narrator And here comes the dazzling seacock Who defies carnal beauty And is sure to deliver quite a shock This world is grey without a shadow or a light Say yes to the one thing and accept your birthright And step forward, you who always held the truth Applause, a mere ripple in this ocean That bathes life and death in the same motion Where shipwrecks set sail into the sun Guided by sirens who sing as one voice Between the sky and the ground Acceptance of the unacceptable is found Praise the lord, we know nothing. Let life live on its own accord. Let yourself be expressed upon Be the voice of the anthem In every tragic fall A seed of grace is planted We entertainers You the audience All of us the same event The cosmos spins darkly with intent Oh, the stories silly you tell yourself "Left alone with a carcass and nothing else" Lay the whispering demon to eternal rest Give yourself a chance to live through a greater test Between the sky and the ground Acceptance of the unacceptable is found Praise the lord, we know nothing. Let life live on its own accord.

Guided by lights and apparitions Our own private internal exhibitions To be shown to the world Or to hide inside our own? I, the sun, the stars in the sky Reflection enclosed on every wondering eye Cast a light into the dark Illuminate the one true path Blind yourself to virtuality Fall back to reality Another body in another life Hoping your misery will not survive If you don't know yourself The pain will come Back through someone else In infancy and senility In wellness and illness In success and in failure I am one, and one is all You're on life support By he tick of a clock Until your own pulse drops And your heart hasn't stopped I look at the world Through the keyhole All I see is now The past and future tenses Drown As the moment fills my lungs

Labelled like china in the opera house Proof of concept in a world that doesn’t believe itself Pronounced as righteous judgment upon thou A cozy prison for me and yourself For every body, a deeply encrusted shadow Looming far beyond your deepest fears All we seek is pleasure, recognition, attention Superiority to lesser cancers Because I am, have and know more than you Through will divine it shall became true Lay your masks aside Assassinate this sacrilegious divide No timelines or ideologies Protect this moment from modern biographies Love hath no desire nor fear If I was you and you were me We’d have an understanding, wouldn’t you agree? Throw away your rigid shell And make amends with your death knell Thus metamorphosis begins Apathetic towards any shade of skin Our scepters run our lives Shielding us from imperfections That means you and I Are thinning out in all directions If I was you and you were me We’d have an understanding, wouldn’t you agree? I renounce my right to the throne Impart no wrong, you’re not alone Thus metamorphosis begins Apathetic towards any shade of skin What is there cannot be sewn Yet our hands twitch and turn at the sight of the unknown “Why doesn’t it scrape the sky or slide under the river’s eye?” Because it is, that’s why Atoms jolting and pulsating Life forever contemplating Forever contemplating life

Life and death at any moment An endless cycle of victim-less circumstances Morphing into something else, something new - deja vú? Am I dreaming or am I your dream? You too are fleeting, my friend Death was made into a stranger And so life became shallow and endangered Little death left a hole behind Stole from us, a despicable crime Let us die then. every single day Enter life, oh gracious haze Now transparent to all light Shining on all of those who still fight Life eternal on the mouth of the snake From womb to grave our hearts are wide awake No opposite ends of the scale Truth is dead center in the belly of the whale Treasures we cannot be "Story of my life" Attempted murder and abuse God the Harvester, and death, his wife Now the world is upside down All is well and peace wears the crown

Ransom Note 04:54
Lost in thought Presentable beyond cognition This narrow space bars every nuance Winds of the past blowing the present Away with every breath Drawing you in and out of context Fragmenting reality Dissolving walls of putrid thoughts Healing broken bonds Absolving the universe Accept what you don't know Mend our hearts so we may grow A world experienced through smudged lenses Broken mirror shards. our last defenses The thinker. chocked by consciousness Fades into nothingness A demon feeds on identity Poetic justice and pleasantries Reincarnating every day Nightly whispers fraught with decay Open the carnal doorway to eternal truth Lose control - master life Align with greater consciousness Act, speak, live as one Fragmenting reality Dissolving walls of putrid thoughts Healing broken bonds Absolving the universe Accept what you don't know Mend our hearts so we may grow It's this voice inside your head Marking those who should be dead Always lacking. always wanting Dear perfection, my true calling Looking for stars in the sky While the light in in our eyes A victim in amber preserved Happiness only we deserve If there was peace. who would fight in war? Forgive us for we know not what we do.

Lost the touch Within you a towering barrier Obsidian to the world Yet something breathes inside You are the gate and keeper Professed great forgiver In amnesty with life Never letting the torch die Be quiet still Can you hear the silence? Where all have all the voices gone? Have they ceased the violence Aware, but not thinking Awake, but not dreaming One with the earth and sky Live and die This is love In silence and stillness Lays the great redeemer Cradled in her arms I, the life conceiver Look and listen Sit and breath in All this you accept into yourself Unto yourself you accept peace You created the world And saw that it was good Now, as all of creation Rejoice as you should
