You can’t help them now.
your time has come and gone.
The inquisitor has set you free without reproach.
The institution has grown beyond your control.
You can’t stop us now, just go.
Go, go, go carry your message; I want to know.
Who will believe you? I think none.
We know how to control them, we know how to keep them calm.
We give them a little that’s all.
Slaves to our ideals they are; they are corruptible and feeble
so, go and preach your words, you will cause no harm.
People will not sacrifice for your metaphysical prize.
How long has it been since you have been making your promises?
Since that time what have you done?
What can you possibly tell that people will believe?
I will tell them with my strength in this unshakeable faith
don’t be afraid of the word.
What does that even mean?
Stop speaking in riddles and just speak.
You are wrong about people and one day you will see.
Once they learn to hold the word and never let go.
The journey will not be easy and one day,
pay the price they must,
but when the endless sleep comes,
they won’t be afraid cause they won’t be alone.
Speak it thundery soft for the word is all they will need.
Don’t coward to danger or the demons of corporate greed.
Learn to be a person become human full of empathy.
The time has come to move beyond tolerance.
Sympathy for all will become the new creed.
Stand up as the redwood gracefully caressing the sky.
Braving the tempest holding firm despite its plight.
With its roots deep clutching the earth,
she will take you from your humble roots
and transform you whole.
You will become a new being worthy of humanity.
She will advance your mind and open your third eye.
So, don’t be afraid of the word,
don’t be afraid of what you cannot see.
The truth is your path through the valley of darkness,
for it alone can set you free.
