Plato and His Ruins lyrics


Plato and His Ruins


Welcome to this time of progressive aging
Where that old pure nature is always defiled
This sense of time – between Zeus and Chronos lies the parricide

Ruins of all nature – nothing more may exist
Ruins of all nature – corruption of ideas

Memories… refuse
Memories… reveal

Reminiscence – against all of our senses
A rope between sensible and intelligible?

Nothing can we build but everything is lost

The pilot of the universe let the helm go,
And retired to his place of view;
And then fate and innate desire
Reversed the motion of the world (PLATO, TIMAEUS)
