Loss of Ego
All I see is a tree All I see is details of the tree Leaves, where light is reflecting And meeting me in my eyes Milliseconds of my mind interpreting Impressions upon my retina In fives, in threes, in nines, in seventies In patterns and lines, our kind’s aggregated memories Intelligent design, doesn’t have to be heavenly The question is mine, is mind matter or entity Matter of fact, answering that matters for jack Cause whether matter matters doesn’t matter, what’s the matter with that? My blood is red and my marrow is black, and I’m a hack So shallow my passion so narrow my path What of status, and what of rap? What of jobs and the cash that we’re bringing back? What of flashes of sadness and of laughter and orgasms We’re sacs of atoms in an atom sanctum Floating past at random, expanded plankton In our tank of a planet throwing massive tantrums Commanders in chief seeming so out of sight From our island unlikely the tide would be turned if we tried What of my arrogance, what of my pride? What of my body and what of my mind? For several minutes bereft of my ego And left like a shell I am empty inside At the core I am just light Nothing more, just an aura burning so bright Just a story of emotions that I know might Go into dormancy the minute my time goes by No lie, as I’m lurking at the borderline My sober mind doesn’t crack the surface of a normal life So divine, and terrifying to see My truth is abstract as the light on a tree Like me Lying in bed, mind is a ripple On opposite sides but aligned in the middle My life is a line in a riddle I find that some medicine lets me define it a little A trickle of stippling noises, emanating to me from the heart of the town A mixture of instruments, voices, and digital layers vibrating and watering down To a nebulous gumbo of sound, floating away from its sources and flowing through space Through thin venue walls, and festival stages, the din of the pavement absorbed on the way In its present state, there’s no recognizing what it was in its separate parts It was art, there was effort made, people exercising free expression and sending a message with heart But its degradation is the product of distance Traveled too far now the content is missing Lost information and gone is the mission It’s no longer music, just sonorous friction And moving air, it was made to be intimate All the particles make something intricate As intended its weight is significant From a distance it’s aimless and dissonant And that’s why our relationships are critical And connections are pivotal Being close to one another is the way that we can Live it all the way, we were meant to in the physical A miracle, how we shape our own meanings, amazing what humans are capable of But it’s all just a feelingless haze, unless we can share it with people we love
