Life is like an ambiguous script
It is nothing more than a over developed metaphor 
Not so neatly packed in a box
Nor does if project nicely from the lips

What metaphor teaches a moral lesson
It all seems absurd, contradictory, and inconsistent.

Life is like a sphere out of control 
And... vacant in a fast... spinning world 

There is no compare and contrast 
Heaven and Earth are unrelated subjects
Yet... the narrators, they keep navigating
Using the masses as his primary subjects

To those, who have made the world their stage
I am tired of the nonsensical images you create.

Life is spirit 
Heaven holds no ambiguity
