the element

we keep drifting in the sea
an infinity of this liquid
in touch with our body
but we aren’t aware

we feel drawn ashore
and think we could do without
every place seems to be better
than the one we are now

we consist of this substance
the basis of life
possessed by ignorance
we’ve let it out of our minds

we suffer from thirst
though it’s everything and everywhere
there are many liquids
and only one will quench our desire

we have eyes to see
but they don’t dare to look deep
such wealth around us
but we aren’t aware

immerse your self in the sea
and find what you’ve been looking for
learn how to live on this energy
and let your burdens soar
your consciousness will be the key

for the treasure box
which was there
all the time
on the ocean floor
