When the sun goes down and the trees are naked,
when the fallen have no need to fall,
weâ€™ll stop posing the charcoal question:
what life do we live when weâ€™re awake?
With choice a circle amounting to nothing,
never a beginning, never an ending,
weâ€™ll barricade our hears and shut our minds
and free ourselves to this conscious earth
A mummied pharaoh searches for god in Egypt
but we laugh and hedonize in our dislocation
â€˜cause tomorrowâ€™s the dream we never had today
and god wonâ€™t hurt us whilst we are It
Life is unfainting when time is locked
We kill and love in our thought fulfillment
In eternity, weâ€™re laughing lightning
and temptationâ€™s thunder
Will we run or fly like bats?
Will we storm in clouds of desire?
We were dead but now weâ€™re alive
All spirits require a little fire.
