Maya is the ignorance that keeps us from seeing the world and ourselves as they really are.
Written by Steve Cahill


Sunrise, awaken to the corner your time spent
in the darkness of the evening
Crawl into your slumber
as the birds announce the morning
with it’s darkness

‘cause what you do is nothing
just watch as all around you goes to hell
and all you ever figure
is all you’ll ever do is just as well

So you get yourself together
and prepare for your future with its’ plans
always knowing something
is bound to creep up just to tie your hands
from ever doing something
to release you from this game and from its’ scams

You find yourself now dancing
with the others who’ve already joined the play
Spinning ‘round in circles
revolving as they mouth “follow this way”
Reflections of the sunset
laughing as it dances towards its’ grave
you slowly come to reali
that everything you touch ends up this way

‘cause what you did was nothing
just watches as all around you went to hell
and all you’d ever figure
is all you’d ever do was just as well
