I - lost
Clamping at mirrors of past; reflections retract, identity crushes and cracks
Into slivers of silver memories; once so sterling, now tarnished treasures
Method to the madness of these ever-changing matters?
Unclench uniqueness with such relentlessness, and ask: if ever-changing, do they matter?
Shards scattered, calmly clasp one labelled with my name
It's the only thing to claim that's the same

Scared, so screech and sprint outwardly
To search for a sense of self within me
Such irony makes sense to me
Well-oiled turmoil recoiling me
Afar, now translucent solutions of soul spin undefined
My entirety equating to a ghost inside a turbine
Are these entities entwined?
Or is all confined in gross gorges of grey matter?
Reaching at dark gaping closure, becoming airtight as ambiguity
Stretching into myself, a shining source of singularity
Strangling questions of sincerity

Familiarly pulled
From these trenches of war, once more
An ally with arms
Open wide
Embrace the love of this machine
Put it inside

Guiding me, he aims towards my temple of lies
Yet this is where he lies

Columns in mind collapsed shaping him as a shrine; synaptic cleft redesigned
Bowing to creative destruction, glorified in gore evermore
Abhor this rebirth, glazing over
Adore this rebirth, gazing into
Mirrors of past

As we are reflecting, the only permanence is ever-changing

I - lost
We - found
I was once lost, but now We are found

Coalition conceived, a machine and me (it's in me!)
Ironing out an Iron Curtain, pulling it back
Fission obliterated, for I am him and he is me
