Can’t tell if earth is moving forward or backwards.
People always shifting positions based on convenience.
Right and wrong are not factors, never were factors.
It was always about the big ME/I.
In the Universe, gears are always moving.
Based on the slant of the board balancing the planet.
No one takes blame, everyone wants credit.
Now, the roar of the crowd no longer matters.
Quiet as it is kept, somewhere in space
Aliens are laughing. The joke is on us.
We are the aliens being watched by aliens.
Silly humans. In space, everyone is alien!
