The price of judgment
Stretches beyond
The grasp of sentience leaves

To be buried deep, deep within
Buried beyond this farce of war

Confusion renders the mind
To the fruitless equation

Empty are the words
That shields us from the pain

Sailing through the crooked waste
Death has opened its grasp again
Reaching out to the weak

Chaos reins us close to its breast
Greed’s stench fills the air

Restricting the mood to affray

Poisoning the well of this paradigm
I cannot imagine
The consequences

Lies shroud the truth

Cancer seeps through the crust
Hemorrhaging through the cracks
Earths blood seemingly weeps

A quake of fear erupts
Shocking to those who dare to peer into the void

Poisoning the well of this paradigm
I cannot imagine
The consequences

Creating, destroying,
You cannot let go from this plane
The light dims down, down the same
The earth’s love dies again

Creation, destruction
I cannot fathom
Not until the candle burns
To the cusp of mortality

Not until I am free
Without direction
One must repossess the thoughts of hate
To open the mind is to create the key
Through death’s sorrows and life’s joys
It must be forged
In time

Power is just a word
Power is just a means
The force that comes with knowledge is universal strength

The light is so far away
And I tried, I tried to see
