On An Altar Of Forgiveness




Projection is perception, what’s guilt but a weapon?
Immaculate deception, hallucinations and inception
The ego and rejection, what’s fear but infection?
I was lacking direction, I found forgiveness in reflection
I’m tired of it all, don’t fight just dissolve
Roots make the Lilly tall, let’s grow and evolve
I find movement in stillness and power in silence
I find fakeness in realness and weakness in violence
We’re more than hunger and hormones there’s stardust in your bones
What is an employee to a boss but a product the store owns?
I’m interested in alchemy and making dreams reality
What’s a salary but a bribe to make another’s dream reality?
I’m trying to find my no self, water has no competition
I’m trying to learn to surrender, the creek talks and I listen
Too many get sacrificed on the altar of ambition
Truth is not frail, only illusions can be forgiven
What’s an idol but a limit a minute to the infinite?
If forgiveness bends time then the end is very imminent
Moon above water I sit in silence and solitude
I made a slit in reality that had us all fooled
Take a hammer to vanity you’ll see that it’s fragile
I use grammar and profanity to shake and dismantle
The illusion of fallacies like the snake and the apple
If you take a sober look then the fantasies unravel
Like can you really explain the anatomy of a shadow?
My only strategy has to be salvation from the battle
Every time that you judge you make a new pair of shackles
So let go of that grudge cause that energy travels
If you’re addicted to guilt, you’re addicted to pain
Then you’re addicted to death, it’s all fear it’s all the same
On an altar of forgiveness I found nothing but a mirror
The instructions simply said wipe it clean with your tears
