Down through the burdened straits,
You hover through the mists of time.
Following on a stranded trail,
You're searching for a nameless find.

Shadows of noon burning bright,
Under the trees whistling a lullaby.
Tired feet whispering a gentle ache;
A head as light as feathers on a windy day.

Your purpose defines you,
You know what you want to be preached.
Shining in the distance, glory awaits you;
But the lights crash you out of your dream.

Darkness through light,
Or a prism of ecstasy.
Silence through noise,
Or an inexplicable harmony.
Are you breathing,
Through the mind of another.

In ages long ago when you lived on that plateau;
Where gardens grew tall in the palm of your hands.
Every question lighted a fire,
Every thorn ached a new desire.
And flew the time like a carefree fairy;
Uncovering treasures, unravelling mysteries.

And here you roam among the mortals,
Sporting your scars and hiding your rage.
Basking in the warmth of hollow devotions,
Ruling your empire from a barren cage.

Your purpose confines you,
You know not what you want to be named.
As the night dawns under the starlight,
The butterfly flutters and burns all away.

Darkness and light,
Through a prism of fantasy.
Silence and noise,
A sacred symphony.
Are you breathing,
Through the soul of another.
Alive in the moment,
Of a memory lost forever.
