Am I the only one? No others dare to seek
Answers within the world, signs showing what this world means

I ground a set of lenses and trained them on the stars
I quantified the evening skies, examined every part
I analysed the glory of a thousand cosmic shapes
And watched the glory fade
I searched across the face of God
And found just empty space

Look closer, look closer
And surely you'll find your goal
You'll surely find the way

I built my new laboratory to shelter from the world
I turned my gaze from moons and suns to particles of dirt
But soon surmised my lenses weren't sufficient to display
The truths I sorely craved
I ground more glass, aligned the parts
And recommenced the chase

Look closer, look closer
And one day the world will know
The world will know your name

I'm sure I'm getting nearer, I haven't slept in days
The answers are in front of me, but hidden from my gaze
My lenses won't illuminate the questions that I face
Some truths won't be betrayed
While I fight to reach the light
The silent dark pervades

Look closer, look closer
I'll never hide my eyes
I'll never look away
