is it so
that there is only four elements of life
or could it be
that there is many more
than meets the eye

one time
two life
three death
four pain...

no wait...
could it be
that theres more

five love
six peace
seven lust
eight deception

many elements surround us
day by day
and night by night

nine soul
ten fullfilment
eleven home
twelve desire

and so are these
the elements in which we must control
for every element
we do so desire

and every element is hidden
or trapped for us to break free
to save and to share...
