    Here we stand
    Between the wrong and right
    Between the crypt of dark, the temple of light
    With only obscure clues
    To clue us of the truth

    Told we should seek the spiritual
    And relinquish all the material
    To overcome
    But here we stand in the flesh of physical
    Expressions of clay from the universal
    Born to be nothing more, than what we are

    This touch
    This sound
    This sight
    This heart
    This compound manufacture of emotion
    This simple integrated sense
    Of celebration

    All the things we were meant to be
    Turned to a puppetry
    To extol
    The guilty

    Every sublime expression
    Of how we should be
    Perverted to sell us their greed
    While on the sale of our souls they feed
    And lead us to the pits
    Of isolation

    You would think that God in all its might
    And all the spirits of our life
    All the angels
    And even Gaia
    With all the hopes to which we aspire
    Would come and at least meet us
    Between the dark and light

    That we should assume responsibility
    For everything created here
    And even have to construct a deity
    From the shadows in which we stand

    Ask a child to expound the theories
    Qualify quanta in mechanics
    Ask a frog to explain the physics
    While you look up at the stars
    And feel the longing of the earth beneath your feet

    Write a bible
    Explain a book
    A dictionary so you can look
    Into every word ever thought
    Itís still only a language of the tongue
    Still only a word that defies description

    You would think in this glory
    This limitation
    This touch
    This sound
    This sight
    This heart
    This compound manufacture of emotion
    This simple integrated sense
    Of celebration

    You would think that the gods in all their might
    Would help us shed a little light
    But all they left us with
    Is confusion

    And they tell us now this skin and bone
    Is nothing but an illusion
    It does not touch
    It does not taste
    It does not feel
    It is not real
    Just the empty space between each atom

    But here we stand
    Between the wrong and right
    Between the crypt of dark, the temple of light
    With only obscure clues
    To clue us of the truth

    This touch, this sex, this gesture, this kiss
    This sound and music
    This sight of awe, this beauty, this art
    This centre beating through this heart of love
    These compound manufactures of emotion
    This simple integrated sense
    Of celebration

    ď out of that contradiction, against unfathomable odds, itís you, only you that emerged to distil so specific a form from all that chaos; itís like turning air into gold, a miracle Ē

    Dr Manhattan ( Watchmen )

    We walk in shadow
    The configurations of dark and light
    Everything we are meant to be
    We are
    Expressions of the individual
    In the Universal
    We are the sight
    The sound the touch
    The emotional response
    We are
    The temple
