What comes from the light as it splashes on leaves

What comes from the leaf as it falls from the tree

Why question the existence of all that we see

When everything provides something that we need

 

The interconnection of need feeding need

 

A step on the ladder

A link in the chain

A block of the building

A track for the train

A channel, a vision

Procession of life

Marching to infinity

and out the other side

 

Consciousness seeding the garden of life

Consciousness feeding the garden of light

 

If you took it away

Wipe the slate clean

Will evolution or pollution

Write the next scene

Is it a mission

Is it a dream

Is it a cog

In some massive machine

 

Primordial chaos being refined

Is it malignant or is it benign

All for one or one design

 

What comes from devotion to the spirit of love

What comes from the ocean to the skies up above

What use are the juices born out of hate

What force is set loose when discovery's made

 

The interconnection of need feeding need

Primordial chaos being refined

Consciousness seeding the garden of light

All for one or one design
