THE UNSEEN WORLD Can you stand before another and know what he sees Or shake him by the hand and know that he agrees If I asked you how, would you find it easy to explain? Across a crowded room, under an empty sky Beyond belief and trust or any how or why What do your senses tell you, do your senses lie now and again The Unseen World It's just the way it is when something unexpected happens You lie there curled up, unsure and shivering, wishing someone'd pick you up and take you by the hand To help you understand We're less the product of the things we know for sure than of the questions posed that still go unanswered All of the mysteries we scramble for the perfect word to hide All secrets can be told, all stars are distant suns All faces are the same, all limbs are phantom ones All truth acquires its meaning with a shaft of doubt thrust in its side The Unseen World The very mention of it proves its out there somewhere The very words, why would we have them if there wasn't something there to talk about To figure out What's this all about me? Do you shut your eyes and wish for what you think you should Do you believe in luck, can it be bad or good Do you believe in fate, do you think that could just be a crutch? And would a word of prayer escaping past your lips feel like a stranger's skin against your fingertips? Trembling, unfamiliar, warm and sticky, rough and yielding to the touch. The Unseen World How sharper than a child's first tooth is that to cling to The Unseen World A mist of half-remembered dreams that one could almost bring to be at last And hold them fast 1997
Estrus 04:21
ESTRUS A rumble from the belly of greed itself was the first of many clues that we can do it any time we want, we can do it any time we want Build it up as high as it'll go with any tools we care to use "Why do you resist, why do you deny?" Are you going to do it? Doing it is having it done. "Why do you even try?" I'm ready I'm waiting I'm on all fours with my ass up in the air From the yellow grass at the foot of the pass I hear my family call And I stand up straight and see him tensed up waiting and that's all I need to know My children live forever, my children stand up tall My children stand up straight My children take their first steps, walk upright and we stay cool in the sun The flags were still at half-staff from when someone died almost a month ago I was just about to lock my door when I realized I'd forgotten where it was I was about to go I knew it was important though The flags were still at half-staff from when someone died almost a month ago 1998
