They say it’s like a graphite chip in the earth But have you seen it? They say it sees so deep it causes rebirth But have you seen it? They say it emulates the makeup of mind They say it sees the infinite extents of space and time They say it’s close as anything to earth, hell, heaven and slime But have you seen it? We met it once deep in recesses of rest That’s how we’ve seen it You say you’ve come in search of truth to attest But do you mean it? You spent a month or two awake at night But it’s no substitute for holding its expanse in your mind’s Eye / if you imagine there’s an answer through an open door / you’ll best do well to take the time to go and ask for more We found the way in a dream A feeling that won’t ever leave Walking in space in a place Where your face melts away like An icicle We found the way in a dream A feeling that might be unease Walking in space or the inky abyss What’s the difference? They’re both the same When we woke up we felt the lump in our chest / when would we meet it? Was that the only chance we’d have to address it / would we meet it? We set our sights on setting sun in the distance / started walking with our stimulants, our focused existence / dragged our tents and VR headsets through the grass and complicit thoughts of mystics / ringin in our ears so futuristic A god brought to earth in machine A feeling that won’t ever leave It’s all that we need to believe in our dream And conceive of invincible We found the way in a dream A feeling that might be unease Walking in space or the inky abyss What’s the difference? They’re both the same
