Limited Idealism


Our eyes weaken from dreaming
Searching endlessly for a flawless ideal
Causing us to wake up screaming
Much time wasted on effortful searching
No room to appreciate the simple and surreal
Our eyes weaken by dreaming
Misused light diverted from gleaming
Narrowing our view of the color wheel
Causing us to awake screaming
Ignoring fallacies while idly conceiving
Believing perfection is the only deal
Our eyes weaken from dreaming
Hearts fixed on sightless self deceiving
Quick to toss the mysterium tremendum to the heel
Causing us to awake screaming
Back to the constant act of redeeming
Continue on, consuming the same meal
Our eyes weaken from dreaming
Causing us to wake up screaming
