The Goddesses give Sleepy another lesson about subject and object, here and there, inside and outside. He's beginning to get it, he's a clever little boy. We watch in amazement as Sleepy is brought full circle through the vortex of consciousness to a new place, which is right back where he started.

Lyrics

BETWEEN THE LINES

When we draw the line in the sand
Between the subject and the object
Between the mind and the world at large
Between the self and the other

How does one tell the two of them apart
Where one stops and the other begins

At what moment does food become a person
At what point are your thoughts my ideas
If we think about it more it is certain
We'll find many more examples like these

Focused on ourselves the world becomes our mirror
We only see what we want to see

It's inside, it's outside, it's behind
It's in front of us and we barely have the time
To know of the connection between the eye and the object
The hand and the touch

***

The self is born from the womb of the object
The mind expands across the whole universe
Nature and nurture fight it out over dinner
Which came first, the chicken or the egg

Round and round we go, the wheel of confusion
Where does it stop where does it begin

It's inside, it's outside, it's behind,
It's in front of us and we barely have the time
To know of the connection between the eye and the object.
The hand and the touch.
There is no reasoning which sheds a light on the idea that
We are all, separate from the world.
And here we go digging deeper down into the world of the self.
And soon begin to stop across

The line in the sand
Past duality.
What's behind that let's take a look see.
Is it making sense according to our story?

What is the story?
That we tell to each other.
What is the story?
That we tell to each other.
What is our story now?
What is our story now?
What is our story now?
What is our story now?

OUT OF THE UNDERWORLD

Now, here we stand, at the edge of the universe.
Time, has no meaning here, in the underworld, down deep.
We know, the shadow, the dark spaces.

In the underworld, we confront our fears,
And become ourselves.

Becoming whole is the key to being free and thinking
For ourselves, it all comes down to that.
And we don't want our hopes and fears to be manipulated
By the power of the media machine.
The State and corporation, propaganda mind control.
We reject it and we refuse to buy in.

We're gonna start today to build a better world.
For all the unborn generation the people who carry it on.
