A vapor has lifted
That I didn't see.
The forms in the mist
Proved to be you and me.
The world that I knew
Proved to be very small.
This new one is larger
Than ants on a ball.

How
Can
This
Be?

Though I'll get the hang
Of the lay of the land,
I just didn't know
I did not understand.
I wish I'd been smarter,
I wish I'd been wise.
I wish I'd not wasted
And chased the wrong prize.

Where
Will
We
Go?

Blind organizations
Have learned to betray
The will of the people
They were built to obey.
The keepers of fact
Have locked the wrong door.
Their truth hurts so bad
I won't trust any more.

Who
Chose
This
Way?

Is there a way out
Of the fix we're in?
Perhaps some real love
Is the way to begin.
The cynics are laughing
'Cause they've said all along
That nothing is right
So everything's wrong.

Is
It
All
Gone?

I stare like a child
At a man with no chest.
He tore out his heart
Which is all for the best.
Another is pouring
Some flame down his throat.
He'd siphon the sun
If it came to a vote.

Why
Would
He
Care?

A third man is pounding
A knob on a stick.
He told me the rules
Are just part of the trick.
The corner contains
A man with no head.
He's proud of the look
But he'd rather be dead.

What
Could
He
Lose?

So this is awaking,
So this is the cure.
I seem to be shaking
The things I should stir.
My fantasy sleeping
Could not go as high
As reality launching
Those willing to die.

To
Seek
What's
New.

But wrapped in my dreamscape
I also was safe
From seeing depravity
Wear a man's face.
So this is awaking,
So this is the curse.
I fear that the future
Might bring something worse.

Time
Runs
Us
Down.

I watch as a mushroom
Becomes a big cloud.
A rain of black ashes
Deposits a shroud.
A creature is rising
From out of the sea.
It's only surprising
To those who won't read.

When
Will
This
Start?

The clock leaves me asking
Just where the time went.
I'm wrapped in the sheets
Of a sleeper's lament.

Sleeper's
Lament.
