Seize your piece of the rock and squeeze it tight
Suspending judgement to power taking us a little further
To a new horizon distant greeting’s precious light
Embracing lies thrust desperately upon her?
Discord like our cargo’s bulging ribs about to splatter
Picture where you think we are, you may have guessed
Saguaros share a clue of trysts without their partner
Under skies of dust and rain’s forgotten past
Nothing left to see all melted in a plastic glow
Something to do with wasting everyday
Bewitched by money’s magic, so says Saramago
Portuguese were first to know, hiring stars to show the way
In the daylight’s reckoning where we left our compass
Comes the point we are forced upon a choice
Which way to go finds us spinning like Columbus
Wishing heathens’ happy dark were gold; genocide or alchemies?
Stranded now by time, this is our new life on Mars
Recalling fantasies in this hot and dry once earthly paradise
The last generation saw its heart turn from blood to scars
Eyes grew scales to hide from Eden’s lost quotidian bliss
What was once the hero’s burden made of myth and tales
Banished back to fours again, all trace erased of the ancients
With no gravity we might fly if only fate would find our sails
Lost forever in the abyss of a womb once held our conscience
Asking humbly now for absolution, a fresh start
Forget what you know as dreams prefer the dark to bide
Reciting verse in peace unburdened by the troubled heart
Forgiven. Lies on Mars of thin air spun in time grown cold and petrified.
