Show me the terror you harbor behind your eyes
Release all those things that you've been hiding from me
The jig is up
I know you know
That's your folly
You let me in
And I saw you for what you are
Words and promises
Words constantly spoken so as not to show your ignorance
Promises constantly broken, so as to show your perseverance
You were once the worlds to me, but then I saw the truth
And then the truth became light, and light became you, and I saw you as the illuminated truth.
And I wish you had been a lie.
The stars were once your fireflies that you could catch in your mighty hands. You stuffed them in jars, poked holes in their lids, and watched them suffocate one by one.
Now that the heavens are dead, we are your stars, suffocated by the lid of limits. Limits to the intelligent creatures we may have been destined to be, but got lost along the way.
So, I ask you, why are we here?
Are we truly just a cosmic mistake?
You know the answer, you are the answer. But you just turn your back, refuse to enlighten your own creation.
Face me and tell me what I want to know.
Face me, break through your terror.
