Phil John Kneis:
MUTATIO - VISIONS I:
TIMES APART
Stockholm, December 13th, 1998 - P#90

I.
Times apart and worlds between,
All we heard and all we've seen,
Clings together in sublime,
Will defy all space and time,
Will so eas'ly now connect,
Will all deeds just now collect.

II.
Worlds now flow and thoughts enfold,
Things be said again and told,
All not new and all not old,
Now to try to get just hold
What was eagerly for yearned,
What we up to now have learned.

III.
Times together all in one,
Worlds fall'n down and borders gone,
Space enfolded will unfold,
Worthless be now all the gold,
Worthless be all earthly fleets,
Worthless all so earthly deeds.

IV.
What was said is said again,
What was done whenever when
Now adds up and forms anew,
Now we might at once construe
And depict what all time high
Let us hope and let us fly.

V.
Ways apart and now just joined,
All that once us so annoyed
Falls together, goes away,
Nothing dark is now to stay,
Darkness fades away in light,
All is weak what once was might.

VI.
Times apart and no more weeps,
High our soul, yeah, high it leaps,
High just all the times apart,
High where all just seemed so hard -
Time is as the world a stage,
Will defy all blood and rage.

MUTATIO - VISIONS II:
JUDGEMENT TIME
Stockholm, December 11th, 1998 - P#89

I.
States will fall,
Rocks will roll,
Time will stand,
Straight will bend.

II.
Night is day,
Soon gives way,
Day is night,
Dark and bright.

III.
Wake asleep,
Flat and deep,
Hear the smell,
Smell the yell.

IV.
Up is down,
All has grown,
All now shrinks,
Slowly sinks.

V.
Life is death,
Catch your breath,
Death is life,
Touch the knife.

VI.
Time will tell
All which fell,
Now the clay
Fades away.

Phil John Kneis:
MUTATIO - VISIONS III:
WAKING HOUR
Stockholm, December 11th, 1998 - P#88

I.
While all seems calm and silent so,
The dreams of time just quietly flow
And yearn for silence and retreat,
The time is now to feel the heat
Behind this slowly turning screw, -
Behind what once to Earth just flew.

II.
The Earth stays still and calm just now,
The pace of time an easy flow,
Just regular, with no parade,
It just goes on, it just won't wait,
It quietly goes, not making noise,
Revealing all those Earthly toys.

III.
What weight now falls just down from us!
We now escape all worldly buzz,
Turn 'round us now, will start to sleep -
In dreams we fall, in dreams down deep -
Will hear no sounds and gain no sight,
Can't differ now the dark from light.

IV.
No work will now be done, this time,
This time, we will not earn a dime -
Just turn it off, this outer part,
May come whatever now may start,
We are asleep - don't wake us now,
We wouldn't anyway know how.

V.
Asleep we are - asleep we stay,
May come what ever terror may -
As long as we are warm and dry,
We will not care - not even try.
What's set in motion, will go on,
The task is just, to turn it on.

VI.
With dreams we fill our mind so fast,
They govern all of us so vast,
They quickly limit our deeds
But will not therefore fill our needs -
At waking hour, will we know
What thing to do, what place to go?
