Tao Of Now

This song is by Saul Williams and appears on the album Amethyst Rock Star (2001).

Children of the night
Only some will star the sky
Only believers in death will die
And fathers must feather the wings of women
For the unfeathered masses dangle ridiculous
Carrying crosses to phalanx filled tombs
The future sails silence through blood rivered wombs
That ripple with riddles of cows and spoons
And births, moons and earth sun-centered at noon

And here I stand, court-jestering infinity
Fetal fisted for revolution, but open hands birth humility
Now, what is the density of an egoless planet?
Must my spine be aligned to sprout wings?
I'm slouched into sling steps and kangoled with gang reps
But my orbit rainbows Saturn's rings
Mystical eliptical, presto polaris
Karmic flamed future when Saturn's an Aries
And now I'm a fish called father with gills type dizzy
Blowing liquid lullabies through the spine of time
I'm certain of Saturn's rivers and all else is fact
So baptize me in the stars and wrap me in nighttime, Moon blue
Pupil my sight with orange balls of light
And echo my plight through the corridors of metaphor
What else are we living for if not to create fiction and rhyme?
My purpose is to make my soul rhyme with my mind over matter
Minds create matter, minds create fiction, as a matter of fact
As if matter were fact, matter is fact
So spirit must be fiction
Science fiction
Art fiction
Meta fiction

The tao of now is here amongst the living
In the voice of children is the tao of now

You are the divine reflection of this earth
She does not belong to you, no
There is no need for your correction
All rivers run in the same direction

If you're serving the father there's no son without mother
Parent bodies discover water bodies and drown
Wade me in the water till Atlantis is found
On the sea floors of self I'm starfish and unbound
Heard that name of that mound is stoned mountain
Underwater volcanoes erupt water fountains of youth
Let's us carnal equation, cancel out wind and truth
Swirl me beyond sometimes, drench me water proof
Let eves drop forever, rain sunsets on my roof
As I sit on the front porch of my sanity
Deciphering hambones to Van Gogh this vanity
Oiled egos, canvased and framed
To be reborn, unborn, unburied, unnamed
A reflection through a blood stained glass window
Of souls gone yellow around the edges
Carbonated dreams and blurred daily lives
But let family bring focus out of swamps blossom lotus
The muddy water blue daughters of infinity
Grant we water bodied Bodhisattva's our serenity
As we rise with the tides towards divinity
Yes, we rise with the tides towards divinity
The muddy water blue daughters of infinity
Grant we water bodied Bodhisattva's our serenity
As we rise with the tides towards divinity
Yes, we rise with the tides towards divinty
Yes, we rise with the tides towards divinity
Now we rise with the tides towards divinity
And we rise with the tides towards divinity
'Cause we rise with the tides towards divinity
