Sentient Me

Repeat, repeat, the empty release
The tangled voices that want to be free

Repeat, repeat, what stems in me
The higher meaning of what we could be

Depart, descend, see the pretense
Decay, destroy, the threads of false joy

The construct, the being, of whats unseen
Caged, scarred, the vision, the fallen star

A freedom from this skin, from the alter self
The simple, the plain, the outer crest, the inane

Detach, defuse, the conscious, the lie
Deeper, farther, an echoing cry

The need to be awake, the need to separate
The open, the free, to a higher sentient me...
