Thrown into the frying pan
Inconceivable fabrication
Geometrical oddities cover the sky
I've tasted the brew of creation
Riding this ocean of godly display
Fifteen years in front of me
Long lost brother is looking my way
In his hands the skeleton key
Lost in your reverie
How it hurts to see
I'd tell you what I know
If you'd only accept
Is this dying?
Reunited with the soil
Deny my suspicion
Has Mary left her mortal coil?
Abstract material sphere, this is the Mandala of your cognition
You have rejected reality for this omnipresent transition
When you succumb to prescribed existence your mind falls into submission
Now you've discovered the fantasy that you left out of your petition
Mary is waiting, should you chose a life by her apparition
Swan by the edge, poor soul what have you done
How can I trust you
When you mislead me through
The Colossus of our youth?
Too young for the truth
Now that you've come to me
Claiming that you hold the key
You might bear my name
But it's you I blame
Lingering despair
This paradigm tear
I cannot trust this scheme
This is just a dream
If she is waiting
Wake me up from this hell
I will obey
Just you show me a way
Enter your prologue
It may just uncover what you've slipped into
Farewell, dear brother
Now you'll lose your mind to the rapids behind you
Crashing water
Brain waves take me off the edge
Weightless cascade
Feel my body leave this dream
