We are One

Stop
Listen
To the sound of life
Feel
Embrace
The heated brush of a breath
An eclipse- of things we thought were true
Lies
The lies
Oh the lies we tell ourselves
The resonating sound of a million heartbeats
They blend into one
I lost myself
Here
Now
This moment
Let the storm take my mind
To another place
To another paradox
To another nowhere
Let me sink in my own filthy guilt
Let my dirty blood wash the regret away
I am One
With you
With him
With her
With them
With us
We are our own pariah
Burning in desire
To know more, to be more
Not one can fathom the immensity of the truth
No, not one-
But Us as One
We've created our own selves
And we have the power to destroy our will
When the wind blows, we are to go where it takes us
To new worlds, new lives
To new suns, new moons
To another place which awaits our presence
Where We can be One
