The Bowl

The bowl above,

The bowl below,

If the earth were transparent

And the sun didn't glow

We'd know

The motion of the heavens from the earth.

The bowl above,

The bowl below,

If the earth were transparent

We'd feel mighty insecure.

The bowl above,

The bowl below,

If the sun didn't glow

We wouldn't be here.

The bowl above,

The bowl below,

A crusty earth

And a sun that glows

Is just enough for us to know

Comfortably.
