Approaching the apex of transition, transition,
Time speeds out of control, out of…
Hurling ones being into a vortex of past and future energies,
Colliding, fighting, for dominance!
At once believing yourself secure,
You are now catapulted into the spiral, into the spiral, into,
[audio:Ode to the Days Clip 2.mp3]
Torn! Wrenched! Dismantled!
Left naked, unarmed…
Here, where there is no time,
You float, nowhere, with no one,
Marveling at the peace, at the space,
You are suspended in nothingness.
