lyrics

Obscurity takes center stage
The choirboy vents his rage
From the book of death he steals a page
He tucks it in his pocket
This firecracker will be a rocket

Recognition is overdue
The shadows hide his crystal view
He's the only one he can't see through
All else is a vision
An apparent apparition

So he sails towards the sun
In his self made machine
As confidence confides in him
He's joined by his dream
A miniscule and meager man
Is larger than he seemed
A subtle voice, a quiet choice
A fast and fatal scream

He pulls the mirror to his face
There's no one here in this place
It's a classic open and shut case
The guilty not suspected
Never noticed or corrected

Society will pay his price
It's up to him to break the ice
A true temptation will entice
Then he will have his story
His quarter hour of glory

So he sails towards the sun
In his self made machine
As confidence confides in him
He's joined by his dream
A miniscule and meager man
Is larger than he seemed
A subtle voice, a quiet choice
A fast and fatal scream
