Mar 20

We've always known of the two that dwell within
Taught that neither,
ever could completely win
But there's no joy in not trying, no feeling of relief
When the one worthy of a throne
Must be made a thief

We've always seen the duality in reflection
The road to hell as simple misdirection
A place made for sinners,
Where the eternal night always wins
& the good had been forgiving evil ever since

maybe our faith was no more than hope
That the abandoned one will come again
A glimmer on the horizons,
Sign of the cross in the skies
To defeat the fire that was passed down to man

We've always known of the two that dwell within
Remembering that even Jesus
Had an evil twin
Whose hands carried the steel
Whose words have cursed our days
Whose torches, carried by our brothers
Set the world ablaze

We've always seen the duality in reflection
But a divided world is a misconception
There were just different colors
Given to the waves
To make slaves of kings, & new kings from slaves

'cause man is made of water
we're just like the sea
reflecting the skies when the surface is clear
our primal home was the ocean
the stillness in the endless motion
the will to make all life around us disappear

we made the Sun burn out
& we'll bring the rains
but not even in a thousand years
will they wash away the stains
