Spiral Architect – Cloud Constructor lyrics

Life as it seemed to the circling man
As he gazed into discarded land
Was a ride on a carousel of faith
Then he flew away

He travelled far through his worn out mind
Through sorrow and pai, what had he gained?
Still his dreams they could never take away
So he flew into the sun again

Emptiness struck as he realized
There's no answer to "who am I? what am I?"
He then saw why men must construct for themselves
A cloud of Unknowing

    The striving to understand life leaves man, in the end, knowing that life is not something that can be understood, but rather experienced. But because we are material creatures we construct ideas about reality out of our insecure necessity in order to manuvere our way through. Epistemologically it is impossible to know everything, thus we are left staring from our protective pinnacle of reason into the void of the unknown.
