    "Untimely Meditations" Lyrics

    Saul Williams

    The fiery sun of my passions
    Evaporates the love lakes of my soul
    Clouds my thoughts and rains you into existence
    As I take flight on bolts of lighting
    Claiming chaos as my concubine and you as my me

    I of the storm you of the sea
    We of the moon land of the free
    What have I done to deserve this? Am I happy?
    Happiness is a mediocre sin set for a middle class existence

    I see through smiles and smell truth in the distance

    Beyond one dimensional smiles and laughter
    Lies are hereafter where tears echo laughter
    You'd have to do math to divide a smile

    By a tear times fear equals mere truth
    I simply delve in the air and if that's the case
    All I have to breath and all else will follow
    That's why drums are hollow, and I like drums, drums are good

    But I can't think straight
    I lack the attention span to meditate
    My attention spans galaxies here and now are immense
    Seconds are secular, moments are mine

    Self is illusion, music's divine
    Noosed by the strings of Jimmy's guitar
    I swing Purple Hazed pendulum
    Hypnotizing the part of I that never dies

    Look into my eyes are the windows of the soul
    It's fried chicken collies and cornbread
    It's corn milk flour sour cream eggs and oil
    Its the stolen blood of the earth

    Used to make cars run and kill the fish
    Who me? I play scales
    The scales of dead fish of oil slicked seas
    My sister blows wind through the hollows of fallen tress

    And we are the echoes of eternity, echoes of eternity
    Echoes of eternity maybe you heard of us
    We do rebirths, revokes and resurrections
    We threw basement parties in pyramids

    I left my tag on the wall
    The beats would echo of the stone

    And solidify into the form of light bulbs
    Destined to light of the heads of future generations

    They're releasing it up in the form of OM
    Maybe you heard of us
    If not then you must be trying to hear us
    In such cases we can't be heard

    We remain in the darkness unseen
    In the center of unpeeled bananas we exist uncolored by perception
    Clothed to the naked eye
    Five senses cannot sense the fact of our existence

    And that's the only fact
    In fact there are no facts, fax me a fact and I'll telegram
    I'll hologram, I'll telephone the Son Of Man and tell him he is done
    Leave a message on his answering machine

    Telling him there are none
    God and I are one
    Times moon times star times sun
    The factor is me, you remember me

    T slung amethyst rocks on Saturn blocks?
    'Til I got caught up by Earthling cops
    They wanted me for their army or whatever, picture me
    I swirl like the wind tempting tomorrow to be today

    Tiptoing the fine line between everything and everything else
    I am simply Saturn swirling sevenths through sooth
    The sole living air of air and I, and, and all else follows
    Reverberating the space inside of drum hollows

    Package and bottles and chips
    And tomorrow then sold to the highest nigga
    I swing from the tallest tree
    Lynched by the lowest branches of me

    Praying that my physical will set me free
    'Cause I'm afraid that all else is vanity
    Mere language is profanity
    I'd rather hum or have my soul tattooed to my tongue

    And let the scriptures be sung in gibberish
    As words be simple fish in my soulquarium
    And intellect can't swim so I stopped combing my mind
    So my thoughts could lock

    I'm tired of trying to understand
    Perceptions are mangled matted and knotted anyway
    Life is more than what meets the eye and I
    So elevate I to the third and even that shit seems absurd

    And your thoughts leave you third isolated
    No man is an island but I often feel alone
    So I find peace through OM
