lyrics

I am the very polestar of movement!
Everything shifts in reference to me!
I will myself to move,
and Earth herself rotates under my feet.
Rolling so seamlessly that I think I've walked,
forming illusions of independent motion,
spawning dozens of invalid theories,
giving rise to nonsensical notions.
But I've stood in the same place,
still as stone,
since the day I was born.

Like a table ruled by its pinball,
my planet rolls under a patient foot,
dragging every grain of sand
and every blade of grass in my path.
Alas, the truth is smothered by those
who want to think they have free will;
a psychogeological marvel,
shrouded in astronomical myth.
