lyrics

Reflecting slowly now that I've played myself
lethargic fool, consumer, lost wealth
Time given over let freely go
this offering left me knelt
Before the god who once ruled my thoughts
I need a final bout just to start
What does it mean to be alive - what does it mean to die?
I need to know will I get to meet,
my final memories where could they lie?
Their final words to me weren't goodbye.

And if I can't quite now breathe new life with pen and paper
what then I'm through?
Is it safe now to state
it's a fable I'm stable.
Set me out to graze.

When leaving family I can fall
in to the myth there never was a life for my kind paved with bliss.
A maddening sadness seared in this my flesh
reflection has a boundary to forget.
Hands idle did spiral not creation but foul loss
castles spun in hot air built with ego at what cost?
A tether self-lying, self-tying, self-serving game.
Put out to pasture I came up lame.

And if I can't quite now breathe new life with pen and paper
what then I'm through?
Is it safe now to state
it's a fable I'm stable.
Set me out to graze.
