Lyric Inspiration: Plato’s The Allegory of the Cave

Lyrics:
Endarkened caves
Where the fire’s god for most of us
Casting shadows 
Impossible to see beyond the realm enclosing us
When we’re born into shackles
Giving names to manufactured images

Forever lost in the prison of humanity
Senseless echoes bounce off the walls
We are incapable of knowing
That the world around us
Is no world at all
Imprison the mind
Disable the body
Incapacitate the spirit

Ill-equipped to taste another world
We stay to our own
Not equipped to know another world
We’ll die in our own

Realm of Shadows

Getting dragged from the ashes of darkness
The light source revealed 
As a glorious fake
Obliterate metaphysical constructs
A telos devised in an act of desperation

Endarkened caves
Where the fire’s god for most of us
Casting shadows 
Impossible to see beyond the realm enclosing us
When we’re born into shackles
Giving names to fabricated beings

Begrudgingly ripped away from nothingness
Ruthlessly cast beneath the sun
We cannot pray to that which burns through our flesh
Our only wish – to return to the pit that we came from
Our eyes are not fit
To adapt to the strength of the light
The transformation too painful
Begrudgingly ripped away from nothingness
Only wishing to return 

Evolve
Evolve or die
Care not for the comforts of mirages
Arsenal of deception
Renders freedom a threat
Evolve
Evolve or die
Believe not in the whispers of the relics
Inception refused
Seek the answers for yourself

Realm of Shadows

Adapt to the light
Dimensions revealed
Repudiate the sensory story told
There’s more than can be seen 
That we have to uncover the meaning of 
Return to the black
To free the slaves from imprisonment
Only to find that 
They don’t want to be free 
They all bind together to kill me

Endarkened caves
Where the fire’s god for most of us
Casting shadows 
Impossible to see beyond the realm enclosing us
When we’re born into shadows

Born into shadows
