Beyond the boats of reason beached

Wasteland of Reason2

Beyond the boats of reason beached

We walked – the lady, the dog and I

And darker day came after darker night

As air of truth died on the breeze

And chaos of nightmare dawned.

⦿

Beyond the boats of reason beached

We walked – the lady, the dog and I

And breathing stopped because

We were not breathing

And chaos of fear dawned

⦿

Beyond the boats of reason beached

We walked – the lady, the dog and I

And darkness pressed upon our skin

But only pressed, not cut

And chaos of reality dawned

⦿

Beyond the boats of reason beached

We walked – the lady, the dog and I

And the tide had turned and waited at our backs

But waited in a darkness, pregnant

for the power of reality dawned

⦿

Among the boats of reason beached

We returned – the lady, the dog, the tide and I

The way was that which shone from our own skin

Which filled the empty darkness

And the shroud of chaos fell

from a reality finally unafraid
