And God said, "Let there be light."
While sitting here trying to hold focus on the task to be get done, my brain has gone someplace very strange. Quite clearly, I can almost literally sensorily hear it, the Mormon Tabernacle Choir, singing VNVN's "Genesis". Sometimes with the organ, and sometimes a cappella.

We are now approaching lunar sunrise,
and for all the people
back on Earth,
the crew of Apollo 8
has a message
that we would like to send to you.
God created the heaven and the earth.
And God said,
And God said: "Let there be light."

God saw the light, that it was good.
God saw the light, that it was good.
And God said: "Let there be light."

breathing in an air
permeated
soaked in darkness
emanating from within
resonating
like a scream
no one can hear
I wear this chaos well
though none should save me
desperation keeps me here
my need for innocence
the place where I began
the Abyss becomes me
I wear this chaos well

are these not words of heresy
a venom on my lips, a poison?
my spirit impurified
with everything I choose to say

And God said: "Let there be light."

with you I stand in hope
that God will save us from ourselves
every cry a wasted moment
until another day is lost
even lands we once called Home
lie undiscovered and unknown
only Heaven's silence for an answer
and did our laughter
did our tears
have some purpose after all?
did we toil in vain, in hope
that Wisdom came from what we'd done?
even lands we once called Home
lie undiscovered and unknown
only Heaven's silence for an answer

... undiscovered and unknown ...

In the beginning, God created the Heaven and the Earth
And the Earth was without form, and void.
And darkness was upon the face of the deep.
And the spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters.
And God said: "Let there be light."
And there was light.
And God saw the light, that it was good.
And God divided the light from the darkness.
God created the Heaven and the Earth.
God saw the light, that it was good.
And God said: "Let there be light."

are these not words of heresy
a venom on my lips, a poison?
my spirit impurified
with everything I choose to say
if I would shed my skin
the layers left
but not the lessons learned
would not undo what I have done
or grant forgiveness in some better days

with you I stand in hope
that God will save us from ourselves
every cry a wasted moment
until another day is lost
even lands we once called Home
lie undiscovered and unknown
only Heaven's silence for an answer
and did our laughter
did our tears
have some purpose after all?
did we toil in vain in hope
that wisdom came from what we'd done?
even lands we once called Home
lie undiscovered and unknown
only Heaven's silence for an answer
