Advaitic Terra Firma

The universe
Early in the planning stage
A silent nuclear philosophy
Poorly translated

Of celestial bones
Cloaked in cobra skin and
Sparkling prophecy

Brand new cult nightmare

Untold truths
In liquid sound
Breeding strange
Tiny monsters

Asleep inside the deep

Advaitic terra firma
In various phases of
Unfathomable intelligence
Dreaming of the words to use

Electric worry censorship and
Godless waiting games
Make up the duality
Of time
