Higher State Of grace

Lying here asleep, at peace,
 resting through the age of man
 Long have I labored, long have I travailed,
 Since the birth of time itself began
 Safely resting through the ages,
 the bosom of the earth my bed
 Waiting here for when next,
 the Lotus closes and the world itself ends

 The hum of OM awakens me, as the long night of my eternity,
 comes at long last to an end
 Stirring from my slumber, the world now reborn,
 as the lotus flower blossoms once again
 Opening now, rising from primal thought
 with strength and everlasting energy
 To raise mankinds consciousness,
 to the world as it was meant to be

 Now at last, a new age begins,
 the world reborn anew
 The lotus flower opens once again
 and receives the Sun's energy
 Down through the roots and into the Earth,
 life at last reborn anon
 Reconnecting man in the early days of this new age,
 to a state of peace, a higher state of grace

 The red lotus symbolizes compassion and love,
 while blue symbolizes wisdom's state
 Pink for enlightenment and gold,
 the world beyond this, the final state of grace
 My work at last complete, the final stage,
 the fourth and final, wandering age
 So again I shall sleep, again shall I rest,
 until the flowers final closing, my work at last complete
