the old man broken hands of building on us
sealed shut swollen holding head in silence
corrected, i am
young man idle and avoiding faster
pace make stalling years of vacant laughter
effectively declining urgency and moments
balance to me, watching the others to be
falling together begins falling apart
careless to keep, it tears the extremity
cries the thrower as he throws his arm
all these years, what is there to be?
what's worth the open arms, what is it to me?
bail! adjust the past, adjust the angle, adjust the notice
we already know that we set process to pass....barely
how could love be asking of when i've been asking all the time?
shocking to see...oh! thrower's dramatically holding his arms back!
blind, i'm bracing and choking up when i see us growing apart

    General Comment"The Disillusionist" could be about a lot of things, but like a mosaic, Damiera's music can't be looked at too closely or the lyrics start lose their meaning. Looking at these words on the screen, it almost seems overbearing and confusing. But when I listen to the song I think of someone who is re-examining his past and realizing that maybe things didn't work out the way he wanted, and that just a slight adjustment of his angle on life could have rectified his situation. Maybe with a love that he let slip away, but who knows?

    For Damiera's songs, it's important to just let the words wash over you and not over-analyze it. The lyrics are just as frenetic as the music and you might drive yourself crazy.
    Aside from that, The Disillusionist is one of my favorite songs, and it seems like just a b-side (if that) to Damiera. Too bad!
