BrooksLooks @ Circle the Sun

quantum quarks
in astral planes
dance above the hurricanes
lightning sparks
on earthly plains
over milleniums
of man-made schemes
of man-made myths
the cost of dreams
what’s been lost
in our awesome toll
nature finally on the run
species are lost
the damage is done

and all we can do
is circle the sun
abiding in time
having our fun
another year
still alive
enjoying the ride
through time and tide
no reason to fear
we can’t even steer

who knows when
life ends as it must
and the ride continues
as a new layer
of human dust
and all we will do
is circle the sun
without a sail
year upon year
unaware of the scale
through time and tide
beyond forever
all we’ve got is fear
we can’t even steer

until that day
the end is near
the time is short
in reality
there’s never been
any guarantee
all we can do is
circle the sun
taking our time
having our fun
year upon year
enjoying the ride
enduring time and tide
we ride through the night
through darkness and light
all we’ve got is fear
we can’t even steer

mystic voices
foretold the day
ancient wisdom
has no more to say

and all we can do
is circle the sun
abiding in time
having our fun
another year
still alive
enjoying the ride
through time and tide
no reason to fear
we can’t even steer
