ACT III: SCENE 3: NECTAR

Forget the ones who told you wrong,
They only meant to trip you up.
And tell all those who brought you down,
The blood they want flows from your cup.

The dying pile of dried ideas,
Could never bury what you know.
Could never be the spring from which,
The nectar of your purpose flows.

To ask them as you look below,
"What was the reason for your laughter?
What was it you just couldn't see?
That i could get what i was after?"

When love makes you blind and praise makes you arrogant,
Just remember all the strings that you had to burn,
And all the stones your blood was spilt upon,
Before you came and had your turn.

about

The Ugly Facade Texas

We live our lives in boxes, with little glowing screens. We fill our blood with toxins, so we can deal with things. And sometimes, more than often, the bitter masks the taste. The fruitless failed reflection: what if it's all a waste?
