Graffiti Splashed On Stone Walls

Graffiti Splashed On Stone Walls

What happens when most powerful men run for prezz of us, can we do what we want
Living each day provides a pathway to the stars, as easy as falling down a tunnel
Money fills patches, solves worthless problems, shows successes the failures they are

Great spirit fills bodies of god, gods, and all projections, a force more powerful than gravity
Hurting for hurting sakes, how is that ever learned, earned by example, play it forward
Life is the interaction between energy and matter, it can't be helped, always creating

Living as a student, not like a student, studying causes without effects, not sleeping
Suns, the children of matter and energy, plants the blood of Earth, animals the muscle
Social media, smart ass phones, dwelling in the brain's addiction nodes, same as heroin

Ways of thinking, unnamed processes charting uncharted waters, that looked so familiar
Stomping on top of the world, dancing victorious, conquering nature, losing by winning
Without people, whose achievements are nothing but graffiti splashed on stone walls

Dragged by the currents of progress, tripping into the future, the present never exists
Past and future forever infinite, now exists less than a nanosecond, already gone
Body is here, inside the mind light years away, hard to tell, except not really interested
