[Esthero]
Oh ahhhh oooh

[Saul Williams]
Children of the night
Only some will star the sky
Only believers in death will die
And fathers must feather the wings of women
For the unfeathered masses dangle ridiculous
Carrying crosses to phalayx filled tombs
The future sells silence through blood rivered wombs
That ripple with riddles of cows and spoons and births
Moons and earths
Sun-centered at noon

[Esthero]
Now....

[Saul Williams]
And here I stand
Court jestering infinity
Fetal fisted for revolution
But open hands birth humility
Now what you the density of an egoless planet?
Must my spine be aligned to sprout wings?
I'm slouched into sling steps and Kangoled with gang reps
But my orbit rainbows Saturn's rings
Mystical eliptical
Presto polaris
Karmic flamed future when Saturns and Aries
And now I'm a fish called father
With gills type dizzy
Blowing liquid lullabies through the spine of time
I'm certain of Saturn's rivers and all else is fact
So baptize me in the stars
And wrap me in nighttime
Moon blue
Pupil my sight with orange balls of light
And echo my plight
Through the corridors of metaphor
What else are we living for if not to create
Fiction and rhyme?
My purpose is to make my soul
Rhyme with my
Mind over matter
Minds create matter
Minds create fiction
As a matter of fact
As if matter were fact
Matter is fact
So spirit must be fiction
Science fiction
Art fiction
Meta fiction

[Esthero]
Now

[Saul Williams]
The tao of now
Is here amongst the living in the voice of children is the tao of now

[Esthero]
You are the divine reflection of this earth
She does not belong to you
No there is no need for your correction
All rivers run in the same direction

[Saul Williams]
If you're serving the father there's no son without mother
Parent bodies discover
water bodies and drown
Wade me in the water
'Til Atlantis is found
On the sea floors of self
I'm starfish and unbound
Heard that name of that mound is stone mountain
Underwater volcanoes erupt
water fountains of youth
Let's us carnal the equation, cancel out wind and truth
Swirl me beyond sometimes
Drench me water proof
Let eve drop forever
rain sunsets on my roof

As I sit on the front porch of my sanity
Deciphering hambones to Van Gogh this vanity
Oiled egos
Canvased and framed
To be reborn unborn unburied unnamed
A reflection through a blood stained glass window
Of souls gone yellow around the edges

[Esthero]
There is a monster living
It's the voice of children
It is the tao of now

[Saul Williams]
Carbonated dreams and blurred daily lives
But let family bring focus
Out of swamps blossom lotus
The muddy water blue daughters of infinity
Gravity we water bodied bhodisativas our serenity
As we rise with the tides toward divinity

[Esthero]
Now...
There is a monster living its in the voice of children
It is the tao of now

[Saul Williams]
Yes we rise with the tides towards divinity
The muddy water blue daughters of infinity
Gravity we water bodied bhodisativas our serenity
As we rise with the tides toward divinity....
Yes we rise with the tides towards diviinty
Yes we rise with the tides towards divinity
Now we rise with the tides towards divinity
And we rise with the tides towards divinity
'Cause we rise with the tides towards divinity

[Esthero]
Now...

[Saul Williams]
The tao of now
Is here amongst the living in the voice of children is the tao of now

[Esthero]
There is a monster living it's in the voice of children
It is the tao of now
This song is from the album "Amethyst Rock Star".
