Face The Facts

Address Your Denial

We’ve got all sorts of ideas built into us,
And our speech reflects communist phrases such as,
“Face the facts,” as if they were totally outside
Of ourselves and to be used as our only guide.
We encounter life as aliens, and this has
The effect of programming. This is obvious.

People speak of ‘awakening.’ What does it mean?
It’s a reexamination of common sense
Which has been rigged within us by society.
Learn to know that it ain’t so necessarily
Just because people’s belief is so damned immense.
No way other than what they’re used to can be seen.

The way to perceive life is not as foreigners.
We are not strangers to this world but part of it.
People used to believe that this round earth is flat
Until someone disproved any notion of that.
Questioning our core assumptions, we must admit
That as commonsense creatures we are amateurs.

We are continuous with the vast universe.
Unending is its momentum. The time will come
When we all will see things this way, but until then
Social structures will falter again and again.
Reflection is where our enlightenment comes from.
We evolve with our mindset for better or worse.

Face The Facts

Step Outside The Illusion

“Face The Facts,” people say out of sheer frustration
When someone doesn’t get something they clearly should.
Our facts are but ideas built into us all.
Obvious and unquestioned and both large and small,
We take them at full value. They are understood
To be rock solid in our own estimation.

To question the unquestioned is to awaken
To the knowledge most truthful to all humankind.
Common sense has been rigged by our society.
What’s assumed to factual actually
Is not fit for consumption by the human mind.
Many times aspirations have been forsaken.

People once believed earth was flat and were held back
By the fear of them falling off by accident
Until some brave soul set sail to prove otherwise.
Surely now it’s not seen as a shocking surprise
That God’s green earth is spherical. A small percent
Still believe in a flat earth. Common sense they lack.

What we know to be factual always changes.
With new information we become enlightened.
We are continuous with the whole universe.
As we evolve together nothing would be worse
Than to prevent our knowing because we’re frightened.
It’s unfortunate, as the mind it deranges.
