Real Virtual Reality

Can you feel the pull?
There is nothing there.
Can you feel it, there is nothing there.

Are you satisfied with the life you’re living?

The internal motion of the sea of me
is like my own virtual reality
before any of that became popular
-maybe it’s art imitating life-
I don’t need glasses to be transported to fantasy
I don’t need Wi-Fi, HiDef, 1080, pixel pounding, sonically immersed…

I don’t need that.

I’ve got my internal ride
my internal drive
my internal lie
my internal guide

Can you feel the pull
can you feel the drive
can you feel the tide
So powerful and wide

Wow what a ride
and you don’t even know you’re alive
your own virtual reality
on the inside

And your mind, oh your mind – is there anything better
to create the stories to match the feelings
and make them make sense.

Can you feel the pull?
I want to fuck
I want to eat
I want to yell
I want to sleep
I want to be nice
I want to roll dice
I want to be cool
I want to rule
I want to be special
I want you.

And off you go, the ride has started
and you’re alive
and feeling it all
and heeding the call
it’s all real
and you can’t fall.

Why would you take the glasses off?
Wow.
I’m like the guy on the ship, in Wall-E
being fed, because it’s all I know
and the feeders…it’s all they know
My own ride
My own virtual reality

What is it like when you stop playing the game
and take off the glasses.
