Lying alone
Encapsulated in fear
The truth we seek
Is never so near

Shrouded by night
Frozen by dark
Reaching out through
The gauze of night
Reality we see
Reality we feel
Blinded by shrouds
Of dark we build

Yearning for freedom
Yearning for truth
That we’ll never find
Hidden from ourselves

Why we care
I do not know
Living our lives
As if they matter

Just the other side
Of our real walls
The truth of our unreality
Lie beyond our grasp

Never to know
Never to feel
The wonder & pain
The beauty & darkness

Why we care
I do not know
Living our lives
As if they matter

Chaos & destruction
The rending of our world
Our "reality" destroyed
Our arrogance denied
Forced disillusion
The path to truth.
