My eyes, my eyes have failed me
A passenger in infinite great wisdom
We all struggle to possess the key to our lives
We ignite, we ignite, shedding new light
Overcoming what we were left with
Conquering the motionless satellites
In my future a blank canvas full of design
Never searching we search for ourselves
My face has seen all walks of the earth
When there is nothing we fall apart
We fall to our knees, collecting our thoughts
They cant know this
The thickened air surrounds us
Clenching at our lungs
Searching blindly i follow a prophets sense of one
My eyes have failed me tonight

    General CommentCan't believe there's no comments on this song. One of my favorites personally!
    Things aren't really as they seem. Brandon knows there are things much deeper in this world than just the physical things. I can't really see into much further right now, but I'm not putting in any effort to translate lol.

    General CommentYeah this is another well written song by one of my favorite bands. This one is about finding purpose in your life. It mentions how we are lost without some kind of purpose but what we have to work with is hard to understand. I think this song is about carving your own path and not letting people choose it for you. I think this song ties really well into the next song on the album, codex. In order to understand how we affect everything else in this world we have to first learn who we are as individuals and what it means to be human.
