Lost

Story

One starry night, I began delving into Plato, whereupon I stumbled upon "bring your thoughts to birth, divine down to the earth" which became the inspiration for the song 'Lost.'  Plato, in his dialogue Alcibíades (circa 390 BC), used the expression ta esô meaning "the inner things", and in his dialogue Theaetetus (circa 360 BC) he uses ta exô meaning "the outside things".  This song explores the virtue of embodying solar characteristics (self-sufficiency) rather than lunar traits (dependency), which requires one to take an esoteric vs. exoteric approach, as described by Plato. Although "Lost" explores the solitary heroic path of transcendence, it also highlights the importance of "remembering" and passing on the tradition to others.

Lyrics

Something told me we were lost, when I looked up at the stars. Closed my eyes, opened my heart, found the answer wasn’t far. Bring your thoughts to birth, divine down to the earth. Bring your thoughts to birth, divine down to the earth. Divine, divine. Everything we thought we’d lost, was inside us all along. Hold the torch above the tide as the current rages on. Bring your thoughts to birth, bring your thoughts to birth, divine down to the earth. Divine, divine. Bring your thoughts to birth. Bring your thoughts to birth, divine down to the earth. Divine, divine. You can be divine, you can be the sun, never needing anything from anyone. You can be the source, you can be the light. Perceive there is more, know this great truth -you decide how bright you will shine. Bring your thoughts to birth, bring your thoughts to birth, divine down to the earth. Divine, divine. Bring your thoughts to birth. Bring your thoughts to birth, divine down to the earth. Divine, divine. You can be divine.
