Ascension

written by: Matt Watson

See a man here
Crushed and broken
And left with nothing
That resembles memories
So long forgotten; so far away

No one can relate
Or show compassion to him
See this man
So faded, full of fear
That his dreams
Dwindle away

This world cradles this man's life
In bleak distortion
His life is hanging by the strings
Lies again and again
He can't predict the outcome
In the darkness,
He feels sweet embrace

They have power
And they pull the strings
He sees only what is told
He does only what is shown
None of his pain can go
And his dreams
Are always drifting

This world pushes this man's life
In sharp clarity
His life is falling in the hourglass
Lies again and again
He can't predict the outcome
In the darkness,
He sees nothing

The cogs and gears
Of time and motion are held near
He finally breaks through
Screaming years of torment
In moments of retribution
His dreams are the reality
That his life is free
With no strings attached

This world holds this man's life
In stark reverance
His life is in his control
Lies again and again
He can't predict the outcome
In the darkness,
He finds hidden truth

Broken wings, fallen
With nothing to resemble
But a clear window
With a reflection of the man
This one has become
To choose his path
And face the consequences
With a conscious that is his own
