The Mind.
Perceive it as a tool.

What you fear is the loss of self
And the maker's breath that feeds your role
(I see)
Yet the „me“ will cloud itself
And the taker's yell will scream „a fraud“
(I see)
So you paint the images left
But the painter's craft will not be bold
(I see)
For the shift that you suggest
Is a theft itself and a play well known
(Yes, I see)

Undress your learning
And take a treat into the unknown
Explore all the layers
Embrace all the frailty of thoughts
And take a walk among the fools
Who made all the tools
Who left all the cues
Who raised all disputes
And learned how to unfold reality
And catch a sight of all the players to come

Names will change
Doubts remain
And they're holding your loose ends
Names will change
Fear remains
And it's holding, it's holding

All walls closing in
Trains of the sleepless will ring
Identities searching their king
The masks that you're wearing to live
Reject them
To face them
Learning the sense of the yearning
Of minds that are turning
The fear of returning
To places that you purposely forget
That hold the core of all your pain
The truth of your name
The rules of the game
The means to the end
To learn how to unfold reality
And draw a line between salvation and want

Just know I am a deception
And yet you carry me
And yet you carry me no matter where
