Centaur's Disillusion
Dead horses, they tell no tales
Beaten into submission
A blinded man now regales
In the tales that they once told

Dead dreams, they resound so loud
Tethered to a fallacy
This beaten man, once so proud
Takes to a well earned slumber

If you can't free the horse, beat it to death
Don't stop until it's down to one last breath
And wake up with it burning in your throat
The man is but the horse that he's beating

With revelations come new fallacies
With every wound comes a new destiny
To pick apart this dream is cruel and low
Just a shameless way to stop the bleeding

Breathing now, he clings so close
To the thread of the known
The pain made him comatose
Beatings within a slumber

The thread unravels unknown
A dimension so unkind
A seed previously sown
Penetrates his heart of steel

Gallop freely, take to this new found world
Still clinging to the thread which came unfurled
Your masochism ends where this begins
Animal and man reconnect as one

Take to the wind, instinct will take control
The idealistic past scarring your soul
Dream or reality, it matters not
The pain is all you needed to let run
