Lay the earth bare Let every child resound Let every voice throw its weight against the sky.

Let every lost soul succumb to the day of reckoning How the temperature rose higher than the oceans tide How bodies sound like symphonies the night after a revolution.

How women sound after they've been stripped as bare as bones and diametric art.

How women whisper wistful luscious thoughts Folded backwards, mounting into greatness. Flowing down into secret chambers Ebbed on by the dissident sigh of the ocean.

How night contains frightful condemnation How night became the onslaught of the tangible.

A great divide a wreckless diatribe of retribution.

Somewhere far away there's a planet straddling the fault line between our Galaxy and the distant one. It's name is eternity.

And on this planet time stands s t i l l.

It is where morning fades into day and if you saw the sunset you'd know that every heart beat resounds against the sky, like an anthem for love.

Because eternity is but a drop and if you could feel its grandeur then you would know that life was never meant to be contained.

It was meant to be loud and beautiful. It was meant to be full of valleys as well as hills.

If you ever happen to visit eternity then I hope you'll send a post card back for me. Cut a piece out of all that wonder Just so for once I can say that I've tasted heaven. Seen myself echoed back through that vast expanse.

If you ever happen to visit eternity I hope you will take a piece of all that stagnant time and send it my way.

I am sure it will be rusted from being dormant for so long but I will hang it around my neck to remind me, that perhaps it is the only thing that matters.

That maybe we have all the beauty we'll ever need. Maybe we are just seconds in the clock. Powerful like every shooting star filtrating the dusk.

And we needn't journey anywhere Because eternity was never meant to be a destination. Perhaps... it is only us.
