Homo Sapiens Kybernetiké

I like the sound of that
Marking wisdom twice its worth
Always fell a little flat

So let us not be wise wise men
Then maybe we can learn
To mark the curling temporal line
And our small vessel turn

The infinite complexity
Entangled with the sky
Is just a place between your ears
Behind your wandering eye

It's your hand on the rudder
It's your wind in the sail
Just learn to see the cosmos
At a slightly smaller scale

And on an ultraviolet field
Where wildflowers grow
I'll make myself a starry crown
And keep the moon below
