Paradise Olé

by E. Shaun Russell

I'm far away from Xanadu and I know no pleasure domes
But I have my immortality within my chromosomes
My mind, my eyes, my heart and soul guide me on my way
To where my stomach's always full of melons and Paradise au lait

The starkest consciousness within the mind shall always have a light
To prove to the rest of my body and world that things will be alright
The knowledge of potential, forever kinetic, helps me see my goal
Total ownership of the person within me: the unity to make my essence whole

It has always been within me
The ability to go my own way
The path to all eternity
My Paradise au lait

Cascading obscurities and aging maturities all lead to future shock
But the keys of wisdom and introspect will open omnipotence's lock
And when the world has lost all sense of liberty, when freedom seems obsolete
The ones who will survive regression's woes will be the ones who don't
accept defeat

The power within is ever so great, so much greater than the power without
And the decision to decide between freedom and faith leaves little room for
The world is in the hands of who wants it most, the people of true consequence
And the power can be shared by those who have the will to abide by a new
common sense

It has always been within you
The ability to go your own way
The path to all eternity
Your Paradise au lait
You can use your mind for judgment
Or you can throw your mind away
While I feast on infinity melons
And Paradise au lait
