Reflection Song

Reflection Song

 

 

Move over Marley

It's my time to sing

 

There once were two brothers,

Reflection and Redemption

 

We need not fear Redemption

He will find us soon enough

 

It is Reflection we must locate

For he is the one who has been lost

 

So drop the act, for just one second

Do your thing, and don't look back

Being clear is for the weak

Being strong is all critique

 

Fasten your seat belt, pick up the slate

Gun the Delorean to 88,

Don't change,

Don't regret,

Don't pity

Just see.

 

Freedom is as much of an illusion as tyranny,

And invisible cages and hidden chains

Will continue to restrain

 

There once were two brothers,

Reflection and Redemption,

Together they founded the city of Thought

Reflection was killed by Redemption

At the time the great battle was fought

 

Hail King Redemption! Long live the King!

 

We will be your servants

If that is what you claim

But you will never stop the masses

From praising your brother's name

 

For we cannot live our lives,

In terms of consequences,

 

Reward, Punishment, Whatever?

 

Redemption is the future, based on what is past,

Reflection is the present, the only thing that lasts

 

Embrace the journey

 

Ride the Firefly

 

The treasures will reveal themselves
