  • And that word was nothing
    Soundless syllables in boundless thought.
    Is this it ? Or all ? Or everything
    A reflection between parallel mirrors ?
    In a book never written
    Seen through a frameless window
    Nihil Est.

    The opiate of the masses.
    Diluted and polluted.
    Curls in wisps over vacant idols
    To stillborn children
    Mother nature gave birth to husks
    That dissolve and decay back to dirt
    In the melody between notes
    In the notes in arrest
    In discord in a chord
    Nihil est

    In the words between lines
    In the worst of the best
    In the dust in the pews
    Nihil Est

    Like words of empty praise
    Washing over an empty congregation
    Like a cancelled play, played out
    To a sleeping audience of mannequins
    Like a television flickering
    Static in an empty concrete room
    In thoughts so vast nothing is possible
    When nothing exists everything is always permitted
    Existence is no great gift
    Death is not a beginning
    But in nothing it is a rift

    Love, Hate in a cold dream
    A cold clockwork circumstance
    A random unknown hidden in simple patterns
    It's a chalk outline, not a halo
    Leave crutches for cripples
    Leave dependence to drones
    Lies to the harvest for truth to be sown

    In the melody between notes
    In the notes in arrest
    In discord in a chord
    Nihil est

    In the words between lines
    In the worst of the best
    In the dust in the pews
    Nihil Est
