Advance into Nothingness

Advance into Nothingness

 

From metal crates metal cylinders are dropped to kill or maim

Inside metal tubes we fly off on holiday to evade reallity 

From metal pipes come gas and water

We drive metal cars to contaminate our world

With an addiction for stainless steel we adorn our homes 

to shine in our self made worlds off dullness 

 

Old stone wells gave us water, clean...

Onward and Beyond

Onward and Beyond

 

In an eerie darkened cosmos a, planet spins free

blues and greens fuse together in a vaporous trail

Stardust swirls in a strange unison in constant motion

A planet amongst many yet unique to embody life

a self contained home of light and life

from which nothing can e...

We are lost

We are lost

 

We are free falling into a darkened chaos

some try to point the way but to where

We have been lied to, misguided and misled

humanity is the victim of its imminent destruction

 

In our folly we repeat history, hold fast to old beliefs

non of this is of any consequence when the abyss lures

A culture of blaming and complaining is rife

no one in all honesty ...
