Many times in life we settle for less. We grab hold of something we think is pleasurable, finding out later that we could have had something better. Why do we reach for synthetic light, when we could have the power of the sun?


Synthetic light is at best, darkness,
My eyes are drawn to the glow.
I wonder if we would explode,
Trying to reach the sun.

Verse 1:
Artificial light is just darkness,
A tired and flickering dream.
I wonder, when the powers down,
If the light will be inside me.

Verse 2:
The artificial light of florescence,
A constant and overworked hum.
The stoplights and the flashing signs,
Paling Beneath the Sun.
Synthetic Light,
Synthetic Light.
