following the line of the tide reclining
living on the fat of the sweet sun shining
drawing on the times aligning
walking on the long horizon
there's a little black spot in the sky with diamonds
living off the fat of the sweet sun shining
drawn upon the times colliding
walking on the wide horizon

never never never never never
never never never never never
never

the number on the back of the sign is rising
the gamelan attack of the trines aligning
chance will leave the sky bedizened
sliding on the wide horizon
never is the start of a clever lying
staring at the black of the blind spot hiding
the universe's private bower
these are none but shining hours

    General CommentThis song describes earth. We live off of the excess or "Fat" of the sun. Black spot in the sky with diamonds... describes the moon in the middle of the night sky. Its essentially saying that we have hours to do whatever because the universe blows up, therefore making them important or "shining hours"

    that's my take on it.

    General Commentliving on the fat of the sweet sun shining

    i thought this meant that we need nothing more than simple and beautiful things such as the sweet sun shining to keep us not only physically alive, but happy and in complete awe.

    chance will leave the sky bedizened
    never is the start of a clever lying (lieing?)

    the beginning of the universe. scientists have come up with a the most impossible thing, the very limit test of credulity, and based their whole theory of the creation of this universe and the laws that govern it on this clever lie. if you can believe it possible that the whole universe sprang from nothing in a single instant, than what will you find impossible? nothing is more impossible than that. we don't need this clever lie to give us a bedizened sky.


    staring at the black of the blind spot hiding
    the universe's private bower

    this reminds me of my experience of meditation. the blind spot hiding from you is so hard to see because it is you.
