I. THE DIVE

Swim
Past algae and seaweed alone
Cardinal directions unknown
Reach the surface dawn
Familiar faces gone
Descend to the West
Let the waves caress
Now the ocean is the womb
Now the coral is the tomb

The heart throbs
And a glimmer of light catches the eye

II. THE CAVE

Enter crystal clear corridors
The cavern squeezes consciousness
Black holes and iron doors
Water current rush the mess
Enter the chamber where magic teems
Cold water surges your dreams
Blood pumping, pressure slowing
A cave where life's not growing
The ruby looms above the skull
The map inside the vessel hull
A passage in the storybook
Tied like bait on a fisher's hook
A story that's meant to forever be
Is fluid like the endless sea

Push forward and recede
Pedestal for broken hands
Leave your soul entranced
Rusted fingers
Walls of glass
Leave
Leave your soul there

III. THE VOICE

Leave
Marrow shaken
Mind shot
Cold surge
Grasp the globe
The voice calls...

Now you're subject to ancient law
Raise the hammer-- let the ice thaw
Leave never return
Lest to bring back the water urn
Strength and energy
Running thin
The ocean is the jealous one
Everlasting ghost of the sea
It beckons to me
Ride the wave
Riptide
Ride
Faces familiar again

IV. THE EXAMINATION

Touch the crystal globe with sinful hands
Unknown life in pacific lands

Dig deeper
Stare
You know not of where you stand
Find the source
Stare

At the brain it does tear
Over everlasting seas
Kept beneath the waves
A northern breeze
Secret gullies and caves
Cataclysm days
The secret of three

Dig deeper
Stare
Three are the pyramids
Electrical current
Three are the dimensions
Forming in waves
Three are the worlds
Yours, mine, and the sea

Find the source
Dig deeper
Stare
The eye stares back
This new life learned
A second chance
Offered
Earned
Overwhelming sense of knowing
Hear it in the winds a-blowing
The toxic smell of plague and death
The shame of putting them to rest
A world transfixed beneath the ocean
Where love exists, no shadow nor sin
Where lovers are kissing at the undertow
Where children are playing when the tide's running low

Dig deeper
Stare
Too much for the mind to find
It leaves no room to grow
For those who cannot breathe the brine
So it is not for them to know
