THE NIGHT IS MY HAVEN, MY SANCTUARY; IT CRADLES MY MUSE, MY VIGOR, MY SANGUINITY.
WHEN THEE AFTER DUSK COMETH LOOKING FOR ME, I REFLECT UPON THEE THAT'D COMETH ONTO ME.

The Fellowship

topsy-turvy

who's to say what's top and bottom,
i'm'na turn the whole thing upside down,
tonight my imagination catches flight
and there's no stopping curiosity...

who's to differentiate right from wrong,
i'm'na turn ur perspective around,
my sight chases a distant kite,
just as my flight catches wind...

who's to say what's done can't be undone,
i'm'na flip the hourglass around,
my sails catch the westward wind,
one glide is all it takes to rediscover time...

who's to say what's whack; what's not,
counter spin your brain around,
u'll see that tizzy is the state to be,
to be high and floating around cloud nine...

who's to say what's noise from sound,
i'm'na tune u to mother nature's song,
give your brains the needed wings,
be an aide to my quest for abstraction...

who's to say what's beautiful; what's not
i'm'na turn the fish bowl around,
what you see bottom-up,
is the truth unknown top-down...

I thought that was just beautiful. BUt then who is to say what is beautiful or not, eh? I think beauty lies in the eyes of the beholder.

@ neha
yup, that's where the second and eighteenth line come from; upside down. Many different versions out there though, including one lullaby.
