The Universe is Screaming Enlightenment
Standing in the lake with Evan
Facing into the wind and water
Powerful forces at play
He says to me, almost shouting
Because the waves and the wind are so loud
"That star is pointing to enlightenment!
That cloud is pointing to enlightenment!
It's like the Universe is screaming enlightenment!"
And for some reason it's so hard for people to see and hear
We build up defenses
And forget that we are infinite
We believe that we are small and powerless
When, in fact, the opposite is true
Clear, starry night, screaming enlightenment
Or at least whispering it gently
Either way, I wish I could hear it
