The World Inside the Crystal

Beside the world we live in
Like a magic crystal mirror,
You can only see the shadows
Of electrons on a screen
From the world inside the crystal
That no human eye has seen.
To a world where magic rules
Where the only law is logic
Webs of words the only tools
Where we play with words and symbols
Its dangers or its joys
You take the things we build there
And you use them as your toys.
You trust them with your fortunes,
Instrumental break: Verse+Refrain
With derision or respect,
Still our souls are marked by something
That your labels can't affect.
Though our words are touched by strangeness
