In the Dark

© 2021 CS Taber

You and I, we are whispers

Waves on the shore, we are chaos

Thinking machines, we are data

All we build falls apart

You and I, we are ancient

Suckled by hope, we are newborn

Feeling machines, we are impulse

The error was Descartes

 

In the dark your thoughts will wander

In the dark you’re on your own

All the love your heart can squander

In the dark you’ll throw the stone

In the dark it’s revolution

In the dark the bones will bleed

You think it’s all of your volition

But in the dark you’ll do the deed

 

You and I, we are atoms

Assembled by aimless chance

Thinking machines, we are data

Our conceit is our mind

You and I, we are God-like

Mothered by nature’s dance

Feeling machines, we are impulse

The error was our design

 

In the dark your thoughts will wander

In the dark you’re on your own

All the love your heart can squander

In the dark you’ll throw the stone

In the dark it’s revolution

In the dark the bones will bleed

You think it’s all of your volition

But in the dark you’ll do the deed

In the dark…
