Carefully thought out, a delicious nothing; an endless journey,
Itís paradise set upon a world in motion; itís paradise swimming through a cobalt ocean.
Complete comprehension will rise within time, during this effect of natural animation,
It's paradise under the black sun; it's paradise on the brown grass.
The clouds are larger than life--the whole world is in a fog,
Although itís tempting to remain asleep under these comforting sheets of constraint.
I breathe it all into my body until I become the vapor that I was,
Countless visions will mend during a rare, yet familiar realization..
Black sand below me and above me; all I can do is swallow it whole,
Confused thoughts will soon clear, then choose to randomly assemble here.
As I eat every grain until I am a part of the earth from which I came,
Where the sun sets in my trail, never failing to rise up again and guide.
Wonderfully unexpected, a delicious mystery; an emotional feast,
Itís paradise in a major movement; itís paradise spread across the ground.
Splendid reactions jump to their feet and intentions become profound,
It's paradise in the blue mist; it's paradise in the purple ocean.
The moon goes down behind me only to reappear before me,
Every element will be exercised until Iíve influenced all that surrounds me.
My only option is the manipulation of this new mechanism that lies within,
Yet the limpid birds are content to fly in the same direction all the time...
Although it is easy to hide behind a tree with broken limbs,
Whose flesh shall be spared from this odd, daylight rain?
As I wipe off the grains of the past and become something I never was,
The earth begins to dry and life appears adjacent to the sky.
Painted in silence, a desolate haven; an hour glass turned on its side,
Itís paradise above a crimson heart; itís paradise behind a lost pair of eyes.
Amidst the artless reply of a distinct moment to the narrow hall of time,
It's paradise in the rippling sky; it's paradise in a world that is flat.
