Spoken Word 2

What if life is a dream and death wakes us up?

Realizing the milky cow doesn’t make the Milky Way,

Living in a virtual reality,

The sarcophagus becomes nothing more than a bitter bed for the living.

For the living are the dead and the dead are living

Welcome to the Missa defunctorum

The dead are singing for the living

Requiem aeternam dona eis Domine.

For after trying to race against time

You end up being caught with time

And now forced to serve time

Note this, your jail sentence

Doesn’t start after death.

When your mirage is death

And life is your reality.

Believing in a beginning

And never an end.

Let me help you to clearly clarify your confusion

What if life is a dream and death wakes you up

What if the point of realization of the reality of judgement is death

And your life was lived to please your sinful self.

Selfish to the core.

Whiles Christ was turning men to fishers of men

You were turning your fishes to venomous vipers

Spending your whole time vibing

To tunes and sounds of demons

Now, your only tune is lonely tunes

Nibbling to what you perceive as carrot

Maggot is what you are chewing

Oh wretched man when will you wake up before you eternally sleep

Note this, dead men don’t die

You are either born twice to die once

Or you live once to die twice
