Ranch Poem – “No Longer Torn”

12/5/10

No Longer Torn

This has all been foreseen
the eternal arms race
the fields of financial volcanoes
the Devil’s industry
waterboarding our Mother’s green

It wasn’t magic or prophet
but human reason that called it
It wasn’t formula or metaphysics
but reality created from our nature

Temples rebuilt, Messiah’s reborn
our minds play tricks our hearts throw bricks
until our beliefs align – no longer torn

I had a dream that I was split in two
one part was alone stranded at home
the other waiting to enter salvation with you

What is it we are destined to be?
a race too accurate for it’s own good
a race that knows more than it should
a race where they feed us liberty
but the mind’s ain’t free

Towers rebuilt, Conflicts reborn
our hearts fear ourselves our minds fear the world
until our beliefs align, no longer torn

I had a dream that I was split in two
one part was alone stranded at home
the other waiting to enter salvation with you
