To plan an adventure, a sojourn in a distant land
Mesmerized by frequencies, kaleidoscope of bizarre new sights
Hallucinations of other’s dreams, yet so convincing
Then I collide with the blatant irony, so elusive yet so clear
That all is the same everywhere, encryptions that never vary
Repetitive trends and teachings, identical fantasies and thrills
Superficial amusements, old distractions dressed up new new clothes
The world is a broken record, yet they call this variety
It makes me wonder who else is here, controlling what these eyes see?
