    rollin thunder
    tryin to be profound
    sound out ideas that move
    and shake
    quaking mental imagery
    over still fans
    mountains of actualized intent
    seeking connection
    sent with piercing drall
    allow sentences to fall into place
    dismiss remainders of elitist superiority
    while concocting a verbal masterpiece
    to be released amongst the masses
    pitiful people
    who don't recognize the truth
    have to have it laid out for them
    so on a deserted pulpit
    the preaching begins
    intuitively verbs spring into action
    drowning sorrowful moans
    teaching the one eyed closed version
    of follow me
    truth be known at once
    a messenger is just as confused
    to the path designated
    by ancient illogic
    spotlight shines on wordflow
    pay no attention to that man
    standing over the curtain
    listen to sonic hypnosis
    go...that way
    yes, be sure of the path
    though the math doesn't add up
    vocal intrusions erupt a dove lullaby
    speech tissue wiping crying eyes
    not one denies the scene
    swaying back and forth
    motionless unseen melody
    lost in a dream...
