Eidolon Alpha (Rishloo)

Oh Child, Deceive me Enter the same the same as I Moments pass as desperate contortions unfold Seeking placid sanity a moment of calm Cancerous anxiety and thieving doubt rain Sheltering indifference to dignify rage Begging for a line drawn in the sand to separate the prophets from the men then bittersweet the wicked so the guise of harmony can breathe again delighted Hear me son the rivers dry again Foretell the fate and lead us to the edge let the prideful sinners bear the gold and buy acceptance Breathe again To waste away inside here The years in turn your haunting words have never left my ears my mind oh reckoning pride is the mirror through which we must break Wretched disfigured confused and distracted Down in this cellar it's cold dark and manic Clinging indifferent privilege demands you excuse your excuses, excuse your excuses and blame You blame Fearful, deceiver, dim motives erratic this dream to ambitious this vision too drastic choke down rhetorical scraps from the attic Forever to stand there and still just refuse to change Just change Set the nightmare alight and Dance till these flames illuminate the cause for the lie Redemption is not beyond our time
