Stages (2023 Remix)

from 2012 by Cyril the Wolf



Time has come again for another lesson
On my knees, hands together, tears fall in confession
Soft candle light blooms but still illuminates
A life building chronicle on which I will ruminate
Don't underestimate the power and the force
Brought forth by a voice, I can't determine the source
Of course the idea is now that this voice will somehow
Cause me to be the best so all will bow

Split upon the rack of our own desires
Turning on the spit of life's hot fire
Passing a hurdle just brings us to the next
The race isn't over until we've all met death

Door opens with a groan, echoing thoughts I was alone
This other person kneels, somber, past of sins to atone
Should I reach out, is this what friendship is about?
Why do I doubt, in other situations I would shout?
Devout muscles start to tense, I close my eyes in a defense
Another creak of the door, and now my hands are tightly clenched
The Waxing candle glow reveals that on my other side
A pink bow tied to a girl who's face has not dried...

We're all in stages...

Then the thought struck me that we're a holy trinity
All of life encapsulated on the knees of us three
The girl to my right, she represents the hope
The desire to do more, to climb higher on the rope
I'm in confusion, when I cannot climb higher
Should I be honest, humble or a cheat and a liar?
The person to my left has no more tears to be wept
Inside him are shreds of lies and secrets he should've kept...
