The world will stay a passion play
With nightmare laughs for all.
Don't question horror's travesties;
In this there is no law.
Just let your sense of being fly
And wonder at the midnight sky.
That stillness resting in your mind
Is all the peace you'll ever find.
Your consciousness remains your own;
Awareness of it strikes at home.
So if you find the great surprise
By looking into someone's eyes,
Hold that vision deep inside
Near your wind and cold and tide.
