In defense of Reality 7"

"In Defence of reality"
Security. Well, how secure are we?
Making our plans in a castle of sand as our dreams get
Dragged to sea. You say you're independent; well is that
A fact? It's by creation's donation that you are maintained
But you'd rather turn your back. In defense of reality!
Today's modern science is your modern religion. Guesswork
Taught as fact--"Don't talk back"--blind faith in their decision.
You say explosion started creation, and we're just chemical
Combinations, but would you take the same stand if there was
A gun in my hand? Or wouls you beg for your salvation?
In defense of reality? Actually, these conclusions prove
Their insanity! A creation without a creator...Can it be?
Just like a painting without a painter...absurdity! No,
I don't wanna run away, I want to embrace reality.
"The News"
An inspiration for a real sensation. Emancipation
Of my soul. And my fixation is some infromation on this
Part's relation to the whole. My aspiration is pure meditation:
Self-realization, that's the goal! But nonsense information
Breaks my concentration, mundane sound vibration is
Taking control! Before I want to hear your news,
I want the news on me. Been caught up so long in all
Of life's hype, I haven't had time to see that beneath
The disguise the real self lies which needs a soul satisfying
Activity. No, I don't want to hear your news, I want
The news on me. Turn down that noise! Who are we
Essentially? Beneath the smiles, profiles, and styles, lies
Individuality. NO more immense pretense, I'll take down
My fence. I want to know the real me. No more acts
I just want some facts on the soul's real personality
But that news confuses, misconstrues, and abuses. It blocks
My view from what I need to see. I want the news on me.
