inspired by Valis, wherein PKD speculates that we are still living in the time of the ancient Romans and enslaved in a "black iron prison"


living in the present
living in the past
living in a present
that we didn't know was there
look what we've invented
look what we've become

look into the blackness
a clever prison cell
somehow we've managed
to hide ourselves away
we hid so well
we forgot who we're hiding from
who are we hiding from?

someone has snuck inside
and clipped and crossed wires
in just the right way
so that our mind doesn't know
what our eyes see
our eyes can no longer see
these prison walls


from the empire never ended, released March 27, 2012
