Favorite Quote:
Reason has always existed, but not always in reasonable form - Karl Marx


Like slaves, we watch them dance
for it's all we've ever known.
Blind to the true world;
To the beauties unknown

Like slaves, we're fixated
On what's set in stone
But festering away within that
Lie the horrors unknown

Like slaves, we must break free
and pierce through the smile.
Only when that's done
may you love, a short while

The ridicule is certain
for seeing past the skin
like a slave, break free;
Love what's within.

If the title doesn't make sense to you I recommend you research the Platonic analogy of the cave, then the link should be obvious.
