Why are we running in place?
I slip backwards into the alternating cloud and fog
Between space and time, mind and matter
I can't go forward nor can I retreat
In this nocturnal realm, I can't continue the climb without a ladder
I wish there were salvation to believe in
Anything to hold onto in this abyss
An afterlife I dreamt of for all my life
There's nothing to compare to such as this
I felt the fire I created
I weighed down my guilt in a current of upheaval
I can't outrun the injustice of my beliefs
There is no longer any good beyond this evil
A genie beyond wishful thinking
What's a magic lamp going to change?
A rabbit hole to another beginning
Annihilation at its best, I welcome the death of this game
The jump is pivotal
The fall is sublime
The extended bliss of a silent metropolis
I submit to my never-ending climb
A reality numb to my existence
Ascension into the earth
My body molded into a failed statue
I was last but now I am first
A nightmare sequence
A matrix of my own doing
I brace for the impact into the ground
I hope for it to be fast but it goes by so slowly
I survived my despair
I maneuvered past all barriers
I still sink in the space between the cracks
I needed expulsion from here not a savior
What will propel me into the next step?
What will push me into the final stage?
Severing ties and severing heads
A dream of a future where the weary decay
An execution of high regard
Stuck in an infinite time loop
What will I finish tomorrow that I didn't start today?
Yesterday never arrives too soon
Will we ever promote ourselves?
Will we ever outlive our own ambitions?
A mimic meant to imitate a fraction of our being
When will we complete our mission?
I'm incomplete within this feverish dream
Brittle like paper but unbroken
I envy the entropy of collided worlds
A lot has been said but most words go unspoken
All of my words have gone unspoken
