lyrics

Towards an understanding
The principal question
Posed Aeons ago
Proposals constructed through folly
Models built upon a black void
Dialectic self-sustaining to feed circles endlessly

The emptiness in the core of us all
Demanding sustenance and driving mutual
Annihilation
The philosophers congregate to resolve an eternal catechism
To determine what will feed the endless craving:
Is there value to existing at all?

Logos, Pathos, Ethos

One proposal: virtue
Live and do as an offering
Strive for an ideal
The notion of a preordained potential
Be it a sovereign good
Or abstract principles of morality
Fundamentally absurd, as perception dictates
The veil draped upon bare stardust
Is a chemical glitch of sentimentality
Nay, it is self righteousness and grandeur
To assume the infinite gyrates to our rhythm

That which is triangulated by geometric calculation
That which is aligned by cognition and conscience
That which is revealed by the heavens
Yet the immolation will ravage it all
And in the void of the fire, darkness persists

Existence justifying itself as delight
To think desire is deceit
Hedonistic yet bizarre conceit
To ascribe purpose to patterns of discord
Painted on a canvas of bewilderment
Is truly the absurdity abhorred

Until the flame is kindled again
Pull me in, push me through
The cosmic machine churns as the infinite rotates
I gaze into the center, the beginning, the ending
I see a reflection, empty and unforgiving

Embracing the pain of not knowing
The darkness of no destiny
The hopelessness of no pattern

Yet within the void I am born anew
Finding myself as viewed without refraction
Without the smoke and mirrors of meaning

With new perspective and optimism
I step through the black hole and emerge anew
