A portal opens wide
Frightful sights, through the night
I've been reached up close and I saw the light
The petrifying vastness of space is now omniscient

Metaphysical separation
Continuous dissociation
My soul wanders free, contemplative
Still my vacant body inert and shrouded

Into the universe I might prosper
Cold as the deep waters of doubt and damnation
Confusing visions impregnating
All areas of consciousness

The profound nightsky calls for me
Violated by forces not known to men
A wave of tension propagating
Crashing against the shores of our system

My muted shrieks resonating
Within the mirage of an ivory tower
From this sphere of sand and ocean
We're dissolving and I must run

Into the universe I might prosper
Cold as the deep waters of time and space
I am drowning
Convulsing under the firmament's eye
Terrestrial I will no longer be

A pantheon of stars
Reached by dream and thought
Am I dying or is this life?
An answer that you might not find

A thousand years of sleep
Till' matter is finally transcended
The eroded memories
Of what was once so closely held
What will remain from me?
When I'll be gone to enter
The realm of the empty
I refuse to be consumed by time

Open the doors of existence
For they might remain unseen
But were never kept

As he runs towards the stars
Vanishing far from where we are
Condemned on Earth to disappear
Is this the beauty of our kind?

A blissful catastrophe
Painted in my dream forever
Till' we all dive in the empty
This portal I will choose for savior
