Kali-Yuga

how far will we go on monday
i asked cause our speed had increased
that germ of transcendence is
always within us, at least

i know we’ve got to keep on going
a fast car won’t ever rust
and these hands of invisible organic forces
are pushing and pulling us

it’s a long way
through Kali-yuga
age of iron
cooled in the ocean
and mountains
are for exploring

devils have danced on my doorstep
and angels have sung in my yard
wise men are hiding in the mountains
while most of us are working too hard

speed is our last great invention
we race and we roll to arrive
by mineral, by mountain, by magnet and meteor
it’s hard enough to just get by

it’s a long way
through Kali-yuga
age of iron
cooled in the ocean
and the mountains
are for exploring

"that germ of transcendence is always within us, at least"
a lyric doesn't get better

nice... thanks for the vid too...

By the way, one of my favorite bands will cruising through Asheville on May 30th. If you're around, check out Over The Rhine at the Orange Peel. I seriously love this band, but they hardly ever make it out to Colorado.
