from Demonstration by Respire



End quote is from Martin Heidegger's "Being and Time"


The absurdity around us, we bow to fallen gods.
Forgotten by our selves, we fade away.
Annihilation at bay, asks us, do we fly or fall.
Being unto death, Thanatos tell us the secret.

“There is only one truth, we all die alone. There is only one lie, this has all meant nothing”

Repent for your sins, wash away human nature for a purified soul.
Follow us blindly through the illuminated hall, only to find this, the shadows of your fears.

Fall from grace. Fall from the bethel. Free yourselves from their deception.

As dread crushes your soul do you realize,
“As soon as man comes to life he is at once old enough to die.”
