i pray the light to lift me out

[i have come curiously close to the end, though

beneath my self-indulgent pitiful hole,

defeated

i conceded

move closer

(let me / I may) find comfort here

(let me / I may) find peace within the emptiness

coming for me

it's calling me...

and in my darkest moment, feeble and weeping

the moon tells me a secret, a confidant

as full and bright as I am

this light is not my own and

familiar light reflections pass over me

the source is the light and endless sheen

the source that makes the hole black

without her, we are lifeless satellites drifting

and as I pull my head out I am without one doubt

you wanna peer down here survey my narcissism

i must crucify the ego before it's far too late

i pray the light lifts me out

before i hide away.

so crucify the ego, before it's far too late

and leave behind this place so negative and blind and cynical

and you will come to find that we are all one mind

capable of all that's imagined and all conceivable

so let the light touch you so that the words spill through

and let the past break through bringing out our hope and reason

before we hide away]

[Tool, Reflection 2001]
