Tesla (Unitopia)

“Like a flash of lightning, in an instant the truth was revealed.” (Nikola Tesla – 1856-1943) Born at the stroke of midnight Darkness was filling the skies Thunder and lightning The cry of a child The birth of a mind that would rise Son of a man of faith he'd find Blessed with enquiring mind Troubled and tested Obsessive, compulsive Numbers divided by three of a kind Oh how I loved her Nothing else mattered She was my purpose in life Clear was her message The light from her eyes Colorful beams of light Baubles and jewels, repulsive and crude Fear of the others unclean Childhood remembered Balanced and centered Order from chaos precisely pursued Oh how I loved her Nothing else mattered She was my purpose in life Clear was her message The light from her eyes Colourful beams of light Alternating currents and radio waves Father of the art of Telautomatics Unusual signals, abnormal life The ranting and raving of a brilliant fanatic Machinery driven by a power obtained From any point in the universe Fluorescent light globes and cosmic rays Now let me present to you 'The Egg of Columbus' Like a beggar clothed in purple, that people take for king Are all the theories and formulae, the downward spiraling Fascinates and dazzles, causing all to go blind With underlying errors, but a trick of the mind Confusing metaphysics with pursuit of the truth Clawing at the rubble for the fountain of youth Alternating, compensating, re-create the soul Madman, revolutionary, all parts of the whole We are, we are…all parts of the whole, all parts of the whole (2x) Showmanship and magic tricks, conjuring the dream Unending thirst for knowledge carries us downstream Alienating, complicating, with no self control All for one and none for all, all parts of the whole We are, we are…all parts of the whole, all parts of the whole (2x) Oh how I loved her Nothing else mattered She was my purpose in life Clear was her message The light from her eyes Colorful beams of light Where's the ghost in the machine? Where's the life blood for the dream? Have we missed the opportunity to live forever? In the next ten thousand years Will we sow and reap with tears? Does it matter that we reach each new endeavour?
