Levitation. A concept our mind has yet to comprehend. Yet floating in a clear perspective. A gentle mist conceals the crystal.

Falling down the void, joining the dead again. Adhering.
Diminishing our understanding. Weakening interpretation. Paralyzed.
Hovering, content. Entering the stratosphere.
Disregarding fabrication. Strengthening interpretation. Multiply. We grow.

In the end what we need is free choice.

Since birth we breathe and lie. Question why. What will it take to fly?

In order to ascend mental walls must be broken.
A concept our mind has yet to comprehend.
A rational barrier holding us back
Crack the dam. A cascade of liberation shall flow.

Create and Explore.
Purge the clouds that obscure.
If you leave your introspection entwined
Entropy will most surely control our lives

To obtain the crystal will result in an age of prosperity,
Ensuring a cognitive surge.
Waves colossal, unstoppable.

Stop today or suffer forever.

Waves surge, unstoppable.

Evolve to elevate.
Adapt to advance.

Stop today or suffer forever.
