How long does it take to grow a new head
And watch the old husk wither and fall?
I am molting and leaving the powerless shell
A great becoming offers me her all

When I rise I crush you beneath my feet
Disappearing, vanishing into me

I watch the world become a speck as I ascend on high
And leaving me is everything that crawls beneath a yawning sky
I will hatch out of this egg and never wonder why

All that you ever were was never anything
Some of us will hatch and grow
Some are not worth remembering

    General CommentThis song reminds me of Childhood's End by Arthur C. Clarke. It's awesome.
