The Great Divide


0 fans


Year 311 (CCCXI) was a common year starting on Monday (link will display the full calendar) of the Julian calendar. At the time, it was known as the Year of the Consulship of Valerius and Maximinus (or, less frequently, year 1064 Ab urbe condita). The denomination 311 for this year has been used since the early medieval period, when the Anno Domini calendar era became the prevalent method in Europe for naming years. more »

It’s like I stepped into a dream
I think you know what I mean
A reality break to a place unseen things
Come alive stupefied mind quarantined
From sleeping then awaken to somewhere in between
Ay, I’m on a cloud parfait
I jump into the valley of the far from mundane
My knees buckle a chuckle chuckle
Muthafucka I get back up like there never was a scuffle

Strange like a tale from Brothers Grimm
They’re watching you we can’t look at them
Living life out here like on a limb
One or the other sink or swim
Maximum velocity yet speeding up so rapidly
There’s no where else I’d rather be, for me

They keep you high, they won’t let you come down
Distract the facts ma’am, that’s the plan now
Where you work, where you lurk, what you search
Climb too much get off of that perch
Virtual reality your nightmare
On the grid, kid, getting nowhere
Get ahead, leave behind lose your mind
Find in time a nowhere rhyme

Chemicals up in the atmosphere
Another meteor is falling near
Buried in the headlines disappear
I’m not the type to live in fear
You dream but I know you’re awake
Explaining a nightmare you couldn’t shake
Maybe the Kool-aid that you drank today

We’re breaking away from the past
Reaching a new plane at last
Regardless of what cards get played
No one can keep you afraid

Unless you wanna be
You make that choice indubitably
They wanna play my emotions
But I’m like the ocean
Too calm to get upset by somebody’s notion

Future makers, organ takers
A non-human intelligence is guiding
Worlds colliding, far away star system
I string DNA where I need ‘em

What we gonna get with a zero field
Gotta have the one to make it real
I tell ya that more will be revealed
The mystery don’t bother me
Everyday masquerade
There’s always too many plans we laid
Keep going faster down the grade we made

We’re breaking away from the past
Reaching a new plane at last
Regardless of what cards get played
No one can keep you afraid

We’re always beginning
As sure as we’re spinning
For it’s never ending from here
After all this time
I am sorry I’m not sorry
Hate me later
There's something greater
From the petty here and now

Venture on
The sketch is not completely drawn
Travel wide
It’s not hiding inside
Venture on
The sketch is not completely drawn
Travel wide
It's out beyond the great divide
