Whatever happened to...
« on: November 09, 2009, 01:16:51 am »
Enlightenment?

Anyone find it? Perhaps with a vengeance?

Or have we given up? Declared it dead?

Or are we all too busy with the rat race?

What ever happend to predictability?
The milk man, the paper boy, evening T.V
You miss your old familar friends, but
waiting just around the bend.

Everywhere you look (everywhere)
There's a heart (there's a heart)
A hand to hold on to.
Everywhere you look (everywhere)
There's a face of somebody who needs you.

When you're lost out there and your all alone
A light is waiting to carry you home
Everywhere you look.

It was homogenized, sold for a large amount to the masses before going out of fashion.
Don't worry though, these  things are cyclical, it will be the in thing again one day.

I'm too busy having fun to bother with enlightenment.

That sounds like you're speaking from experience.  Given that, I would have to assume that "enlightenment" involves stalking people and spagging up threads for the hell of it.

No thanks.

Any so-called "enlightenment" that seems fun cannot possibly be enlightenment.


True enlightenment makes you feel like you've just been ZALGO'd.
