A New Eon

I can feel the panic on each TV station
The madness and the conflagration
As they all compete to get heard
But do you hear the bird
Diamond cheep with the air
Beneath its wings as it flies in there
And it’s everywhere that is sky
I don’t think they mean to lie
But it’s like an endless repetition
Trying to get the first edition
Of tomorrow before the dawn
Where has the present moment gone?
If it’s like a competition
And you’re fighting but you’re a Christian
Do you think the love of God means that?
And I see my own war as I balk at what they’re at
Am I any different in truth?
Have I lived the promise of my youth
Or do I just see an enemy
Trying to get the best of me
Where did brotherhood go
Or being a sister in the know
I think the silence will tell
All of the secrets they keep so well
But I see it in myself
It starts with you now the cards have been dealt
And it’s up to the sunlight to show the dawn
I know it might be hidden but it isn’t gone
The peace beneath the waves
The ground under what is paved
Do you know who you are?
Or do you just make a black hole out of a star?
As the constellations show their age
Light years away from the war we wage
Do you think it means aught to the sky
We’re born, we live and then we die
What is permanent
Could you say the Truth is an event?
Or is it more like a scene
That wakes as we live the dream
Thinking it’s our own creation
The defeat and the elation
Just polarities
And does it matter who disagrees
If we’ve invested thought
With the rhythm of the schism we’ve bought
But are you caught
Let go and become all that you’ve sought
And when the night arrives
Be content with what survives
Each and every dusk
I let go the weight and I just trust
