See for me.
Let your eyes become mine as the wind has become my ears.
Go now through the darkness.
Through the empty streets.
Fly over the city.
As it rests for the days to come


Fly faster now.
Over the hills and out of this void.
And when you come to the hills you will find you are still restrained by shackles of ignorance and war.


Fly faster now.
Out over the endless ocean.
Through the doldrums.
Through gray skies.
And everything beneath you will try to pull you down.
Down into the sea.
Into the darkness.
Back into uncertainty and fear.


Fly Faster now.
Fly to the place that does not yet exist.
Dive into the depths of your mind and find where it lies.


Become my eyes.
Become me.
Guard me from the world.
Help me find the place where true existence lies.
Reassure me that it is worth the journey.
Reassure me that the end justifies the means.
Reassure me that life is worth living.
