Secundum Sensum

Listen to Secundum Sensum by Richard Charles Stevens

Listen to Signals in the Night by Waveshaper

Everything to gain
From the pain
From the rusted iron chains
That only trusted eyes can break
Shame paraded
Front and centre
Blame placed on redundant sensors
Please translate
Secundum sensum
Thus deny unjust consensus

Life may seem to be unsympathetic to your needs
The antiseptic sting of pathogenic inner bleeds
Septic tank of thankless task
Generic rank
Defective mask
Reflecting back on fractious past
Recessive lack of active parts
Fractured heart
Traumatic scars
In atrophy
And cracked apart
An end portended lack of start
And senseless to degree

Relentless is the sea
Foreseen no treasure in its deep
One lean feather of forever
In an end of terrace breeze

Feeding from the vital air
Receding in its stifled lair
To be esteemed as rightful heir
It needed to be weakened
Beaten black and blue
Depleted knack to stagger through
Yet on the back of every pain inflamed
A greater blaze ensues

When the pain becomes too great
Lends undue weight
To undulate the sense of shame paraded
Front and centre
Replace redundant sensors
Please translate
Secundum sensum
Trust your gut
And thus deny unjust consensus

Everything to gain
To abstain would be plain senseless
Leave you exposed
Laying prone and defenceless
Predisposed
In the throes of disclosing repentance
When heaven only knows
You served your sentence

Heaven only knows
You served your sentence
Heaven only knows
You served your sentence
Heaven only knows
You served your sentence

Whence the blade be thrust
Remaining fair and just
Retouch thy fate
Clutch that brimming
Sense and feeling
Indicating
Custom framing
Thus narrating
Everything to gain
Please translate
Secundum sensum
Reawaken
Front and centre
Reawaken
Front and centre

Play the long game
Make strong claim
Set goals to succeed
Take an oath
To wage growth
And make known no impede
Be authentic
Eccentric
And unapologetic as unprecedented as that may be seen
Be kinetic
Be magnetic
Be the dream
Be kinetic
Be magnetic
Be the dream
Be kinetic
Be magnetic
Be the dream
And I’ll race you to the river
In-between
I’ll race you to the river
In-between

Race you to the river
In-between
