"FOR THE WORLD IS HOLLOW, AND I HAVE TOUCHED THE SKY"

All of my life I have struggled;
reality vs. fantasy.
I have lived here in this bubble;
no one alive will listen to me.

They call me the 'ghoul-faced madman'.
If I could just get them all to see,
we're dwelling here in a tin can;
floating along through space endlessly.

"Lock him up!  Throw away the key!
Yes, secure him behind bar and door.
Ignore the dreamer, let him be;
don't listen to his rants anymore!"

If only they'd just ask me why,
I'd tell them right straight to their face:

For the world is hollow, and I have touched the sky...
it's all a grand illusion; we're lab rats in this place!
from a line in a Star Trek OS episode. also a nice poem for the new show: UNDER THE DOME

if you've ever seen that particluar episode of Star Trek OS, the inhabitants of Unada are unaware that the planet they live on is actually a spaceship created 10,000 years ago, designed to take them to a new world. pretty cool idea. i always thought that that title was inherently poetic

Thought I was familiar with all of these episodes, have no recollection of this one. However the title does ring faint bells:rose:
