Songs of the Unknown

Beyond the expanse of our

Windows and countless doors

There are opportunities stacked like a tower

Causing us to daydream for more

Lyrics of life calling to our souls

Its melody singing through the spaces between

Reaching our ears through bedrock and folds

We listen to something that has never been

The plummeting drop of adventure

Plays to a fast electric beat

It sings of going off centre

Jumping from feat to feat

The tears we cry in times of grief

Resound in melancholic score

The ivory keys play on, but only brief

Till we realise to life there is more

The sprinting moment of joy

With a background of pumped notes

Reminds us of the times enjoyed

Like setting sail into the summer by boat

And times when we are suffering

From a flair for the dramatic

Orchestra violins and cellos ring

Rendering us more psychopathic

The song seeps through the cracks of our walls

Ringing through the vast corners of the land

Rising from the emptiest of abyss’, it calls

Reminding us of all that is at hand

We know not where they come from

We know not why they are the way they are

We do know from the minute we rise in the morn

That we will always hear them from afar

Not everyone knows of these tunes

Yet play a greater part than is shown

Guiding us from the ruins

They are the songs of the unknown
