Glimpses flashing in my head
I stop and think
How'd I get here
Some moments the veil vanishes

Insights squirming from my grasp
I dive, epiphanise that...
Some moments the veil closes in

Chemical, you are a part of me now
What began as an escape
In a death grip I'm now bound

When I'm chasing textures that viper beckons
With fractal questions, visceral lessons
I am changing, embracing this form
Exposing my eyes to an undeniable truth

I am growing
I am changing
I am burning
I am flailing

I scream inside the abyss
Hoping for echoes that I exist
Tell me, have you ever felt alive?

La química
You are apart from me and I'm calling out
I'm floating above, oh so cynical
I suffer stagnant
Constricted, bound

And I know that there's nothing that I might gain from this
But fuck it I am gonna crawl along this path alone

Ideas grasped in darkest nights
I start to think
In the heart of all life, eternity and death vibrate equanimously

I scream inside the abyss
Hoping for echoes that I exist
Nothing could prepare me for this time
(The extinguishing of all light)
I dream in endless white bliss
Knowing its futile if I resist
Tell me, have you ever felt alive?

Then I felt it for the very first time in my life

I am growing
I am changing

For eternity
Beyond the veil we embrace
