Rising from the flames that burn I have an image that I hold so dear
And I am starting to see the details as the smoke begins to clear
For I have seen my life before me and from this I take a stand
Right beside the ones in question as we take matters into our own hands.

For I have eaten from the tree of knowledge
And I have tasted the juice of thought
And I know now just where I need to go
With an urgency to forge the unknown.

The religious right can curse me as evil and say I live in shame
But my life’s been left out of your book and you don’t even know my name
Known to passion known to pain and from this I can sustain
On the truths within my power and not your righteous words ordained.

For I have eaten from the tree of knowledge
And I have tasted the juice of thought
And I know now just where I need to go
With an urgency to forge the unknown.
