Have you ever seen a man,

Who walked down the street, white robe with no shoes on his feet,

And on top of his head placed a box with two slits,

And a sign from his neck that said “I do not exist”
 

Or a woman who could not remember her name,

And stuttered and stuttered again and again,

And saw you and called you her son,

Her eyes said

“My being is gone, but still I’m not dead”
 

Have you ever seen a sound

Have you listened to an image

Have you ever touched a thought

Have you ever tasted nothing

Have you ever told a lie that was true more than truth

Because truth it had lied all its life

When it spoke to you and
 

What did it say, it is that, it is this, this goes here, here is there,

It is not, yes it is

It was dying, your senses, your eyes, they were numb

And forever my friends, been looking around
 

And the other replies with a wave of a hand,

I am already here in this promised land,

But not by a god,

And not by a king,

And not by a spirit, deep from within
 

Have you ever been so happy that you’re sad,

That the lights turn to stars,

And the stars become eyes,

And hellos are goodbyes,

And the laughs are the sighs,

And the show disappears with a note

Until next time
 

Do you ever look around

Turn your ear to the ground

Show your face to the sky on a night when the skies echo sounds?

From inside of your mind,

On the stage that you shone when the sun did become you and
 

Move with your thoughts through the signs and the scenes

Of the worlds you have seen and the sights that have been

Your reflection in shadows and dreams
 

Do you ever look around and find what is yet to be found
