lyrics

I gazed into her vastness
Each star like a child, wandering in blackness.
It was there at the steps
She greeted me with a kiss
That singed my lips
With calm and quiet fire.

The sound waved softer.
The flames burnt brighter.
She took me
Farther from home than I'd ever be,
Knee deep in cotton candy clouds
On the horizon-
At the edge of every sunset.

She led me inside.
Projections of love and war surround me.
The tides of time
Measured in tiny life-times-
Were shown on each wall
Like holy tapestries.
With the truth of it all
teasing in my periphery.

All is a dream.
Realistic as it seems,
We are all just clever liars.

The soul of love,
Smiling softly as it does,
Moved through the place.
Light beaming and breaking calmly,
The scent of flower gardens,
The sound of water falling
Made the thought drop:
“All is an accident, all is beautiful.”

All is forgiven in the ecstasy.
Ascending the pain and pleasure
Of harmony,
I closed my eyes and peace profoundly
came over me like gentle waves
washing on shores to new lands
where I find her smiling.
Tender and kind,
She kissed me awake.

All is a dream.
Realistic as it seems,
We are all just clever liars.
Truth sets one free
Difficult as it may be.
For now we are as moths climbing fires

Then, in violent bursts,
She spurred me.
Reveling in the revealing
Of ultimate reality,
The Truth devoured me
And left me whirling.
I laughed and I cried till surely
I did neither.

It’s all a dream
realistic as it seems.
The Truth will set us free-
We, as moths, one with the fire.
Bright and brilliant
As this palace in the stars.
For now
We are all just clever liars.
