A tale about how Mother Earth keeps her deepest secret.
Her Dark Kept Secret
Decisions, conditions with infinite visions
Of life and our destiny
Creating suspicions subtracting additions
By the sound of her thundering seas
From the echoes from the deep that transpire
And as a volcano erupts through the night
Hiding the mysteries that consume us
That she will protect with all of her might
Be it the sun or the moon or the stars high above
From the sands of the desert and oceans
Her secrets are hidden yes strictly forbidden
Dusted away through the times of erosion
Her disasters cause mayhem and fury
As the people take heed and they flee
When the hurricane storms up the coast
With the name that she boasts
So violent through the eye that she sees
Her eyes are her pools and her rivers
Her veins are her creeks and her streams
As she lies wide awake with every breath that we take
Confined in the midst of her dreams
Her heartbeat is the life deep within us
As a breeze kisses the leaves through the trees
For if you step in too close with the chill of her ghost
You'll succumb to her death by disease
She gives us the power to thrive and devour
To discover her prophecies
But to never dissever not now or forever
From the depth of her thundering seas
So don't ever meander in searching
For the meaning of life that we seek
Because you'll be left all alone
Just a pile full of bones
With the secrets forever she'll keep
