Rational Gaze Lyrics

Squint your eyes to see clearly, blur reality to make it real
Let focus go from your deceiving eyes to know what’s been concealed
We’ve all been blinded, subjects to visual misinformation
A systematic denial of the crystalline

To see the fine grain, to read the hidden words
The context of parallel truth devoid of fragmentation

Our light induced image of truth, filtered blank of its substance
As our eyes won’t adhere to telltale lies
Everything examined, separated, one thing at a time
The harder we stare the more complete the disintegration

Rational gaze, eyes re-opened
Reasoning focalized, receptors activated

Perspectives distorted, the ladder beyond our grasp
The twin-headed serpent forever hidden
Where’s the true knowledge?
Where engines of the sane and insanity merge?
The clarity, the unity

Reality untouchable, transparent
Invisible to our fixed, restricted fields of vision
Existence taken for granted, absolute
Possessed, owned, controlled by the common sense infected rational gaze
Onward forever we walk among the ignorant
Never stray from the common lines

Meshuggah - Nothing - Cover
