As we fall back through black holes and irises scorned
Heaven crumbles among us
Was this His plan?
Were we forsaken?
Left to wither out like embers from the mouths of sadists
We degrade ourselves
Mutilate one another
Disembowel our children for meanings beyond our own intellect
A dip into the fractured human psyche reveals revelations
Crack open one from humanities kind and inhale the pneuma
Within our own heads we can reach farther beyond space
Why embark outside our own universe searching for distant planets
Beyond the unknown is where we come from
Beyond the unknown is where our answers are
And it is beyond the unknown
We will never be
So we snuff each other
And prostrate for our creator to lead us
Beyond that unknown towards distant planets
Answering our revelations
