Above us stands a world misunderstood
Lay below a blue world with depths unknown
Above us stars stand speckle in an endless strand of black
Below us a colorful world of soft sand and pods of fish
Above, a black hole with no end
Our blue world below with young fish scatter about
Where starfish tatoo the coral reefs
A happy land where fish eat and play
Never getting into trouble
Here I stand in the middle of this all
Me...a statistic of mankind
Contemplating whether I should go up or down
Down, a smooth sailing world
Above, a world of constant chaos
People don't know where some people went
They proabably took a turn down the wrong path
