Only I will remain

 

"I must not fear.

Fear is the mind-killer.

Fear is the little-death

That brings total obliteration"

 

Who put the petals of lead onto our eyelids?

How did we end up so sad?

We stand unable to speak

And all of our misdeeds

Just sit in shame upon our cheeks

 

And someday the sun’ll burn forests and ignite the air          

And someday the sun’ll make the oceans boil up out of despair

 

I am not waiting for my hopes

To grow higher than trees

Too high and the devil sees

I am not waiting another minute, another year

Have I suffered beyond repair?

 

Will I pull through the night

Trying to force out all my demons back into the light?

(I just want to get one thing right)

Doesn’t take a special kind of trick

Or a dire way of things to make a person weak

(I just want to give up with pride)

 

And someday the sun’ll burn forests and ignite the air

And someday the sun’ll make the oceans boil up out of despair

I won’t sit around and guess

Or wait for someone to confess

Once the heads have rolled

Well you trust me to be good

But will you stand still if I shoot

As the clues unfold?

"I will face my fear.

I will permit it to pass over me and through me.

And when it has gone past

I will turn the inner eye to see its path.

Where the fear has gone there will be nothing.

Only I will remain."
