O Mother, you see something I don’t
Why else would you give so much? I can’t even count
Your wish is to see me win
By befriending all, whether foreign or native skin
I didn't give a push to this wave
Sorry, it's being frittered, on everything I crave
You built us this magnificent temple
Our corner of the universe, it’s so special
Like the distant twinklers hiding behind the sun
Movies from light years away continue to run
When I look up, I’m the cynosure of the cosmic eyes
When I look within, I’m walled off by the mind’s lies
O Mother, may I borrow your eyes for just one instant?
I want the vision to change, I’m truly repentant
There isn’t a real clock, is there?
This moment becomes you, the eternal, when I am nowhere
