is a mystery
and all that studying gets
is more questions than answers
like trying to catch a lazer dot
the heavens themselves mocking us
when we think the dot we caught
then it slips away again
and fades into the mist
of religion and footprints
from ancestors long amiss
we go to work and come home
a routine turns to rut
sometimes we pick up a crystal
and worship someone called Mut
so tell me what you think of this
life that we call home?
stuck on a blue marble out in space
where greed has claimed it’s home?
lost connections and using humans
like tools for an ego boost instead
of making friends and worshipping nature
surrounding us in colors only read
about from the spectrum
of light only seen by cats and shrimp
these things called cones in our eyes
help us to attempt
to reconstruct what stimuli
enters our senses five
but that’s not what the world truly is
and I’ll tell you why
ever heard of Plato’s Cave?
or that we have a very limited view of light?
that we can only interpret what our brain can process
and that there’s much more light at night?
so with all the studying
that we have done throughout our shoots
and dragonology even have their roots
