Eidola
The Abstract of a Planet in Resolve
Once again, here I am
On the precipice of breathlessness, my lungs collapse
I can’t escape the act

If I live in a city where they hunt me down
How long do you expect me to stay and wait to calibrate?
If I bribe the committee with an offering
Will they offer me commitment or calcify the magistrate?

Because when I give in
I hope that I can be a better man in the end and carry on
But when you give up
Then everything we’ve ever shared will self-destruct and tip the scales
Choose to prevail

If I live in a country where they propagate the wealth
In corporate raids then who am I to speak?
They forgive you of nothing
And they breed, and they breed, and they breed until they overstimulate the earth and feed upon the weak

Because when I give in
I hope that I can be a better man in the end and carry on
But when you give up
Then everything we’ve ever shared will self-destruct and tip the scales
Choose to prevail

If I live in a world where a consciousness exists
Outside the walls of pain, ignorance, and habitual waste
Then I will stand on the edge of the earth
As a monument to the greater good of man
To be born again
