lyrics

The Miracle Of the Dead Trees

The Miracle of the dead trees
Was that they were still alive
Not only in the minds of man
But deep under ground
Expanding in silence
And holding the soil
In their embrace.

Have you noticed that
Roots resemble crowns
And that their branches
Are but extensions of the hidden
Which feeds and nourishes them?

Just as the cradle of existence
Remains invisible to the external eye
We see but the tip of the iceberg.
The shape below remains concealed
In spite of divers and drones

We are united with the energy
That guards and nourishes us
From below and above
But which we are blind to
Not for lack of vision
But for the lack of insight.

The magician’s game
Was to highlight the trivial
To perform his magic act
In the dark
Leaving us to believe
That the trick was the truth
But as the concealed iron heart
Of our former sun beats
Beneath molten lava
The hidden bones in our bodies
Keep us upright.

Our diurnal landscapes
Are but charm bracelets
Offering beautiful objects,
Symbols mirroring
The genuine
Into a cheaper hue of gold.

And Man is the negative space
Within the relevant.
We are the shadow of the shape
We seek
And our focus needs readjusting
To the cause
Instead of the effect
And so the puzzle pieces
Will fall into place
Revealing the true picture.
