Destroy me, only I resurrect.

Reflect my presence never dies.

Fly with me, I am no dragon.

Passion dwells within this void.

Avoid me, only see, I’m still there.

Everywhere the wind blows.

Flows ashes to ashes, dust to dust.

Tryst must bring about lexes.

 

Renovate, reform, reminiscent traits of Optimus Prime.

Redefine trice of dawn has three stages, create a change.

Rearrange the order of who I am, what I am.

12 A.M. is coming like no fairy tale, Cinderella.

Good-fellas hear me out, shout out loud.

Proud as you might, get your undivided attention.

Detention my time is a distant war fleeting.

Greetings my brother and sisters.

Administer this love and hate for a song.

Long is a moment, when clock strikes.

Like or dislike the guise, but not the rhyme.

Time is just a formality, reality is a new day.

Today is a constant reminder of a remainder.

Defender beget throw down your gauntlet.

Let me be, who I am to be, what I am to be.

See a fire burns, befalls a bird of phoenix.

 

Destroy me, only I resurrect.

Reflect my presence never dies.

Fly with me, I am no dragon.

Passion dwells within this void.

Avoid me, only see, I’m still there.

Everywhere the wind blows.

Flows ashes to ashes, dust to dust.

Tryst must bring about lexes.

 

The old I is still there.

Where ashes were are my scales.

Impale me, yet you would never know.

Show through by battle dressing I wear.

Care to share with me, my killer instinct.

Extinct cannot be conceived.

Relieved of your duty, before being set free.

Fee there is a price to pay for a dream.

Seems farfetched to outstretch your limit.

Submit to the latter of flatteries.

Batteries not included in this life.

Strife through what kills the heart.

Apart to be torn, you live with one part.

Depart the others for sacrifice.

Ice is the coldest death to comprehend.

Mend darkness perceive fire within.

 

Destroy me, only I resurrect.

Reflect my presence never dies.

Fly with me, I am no dragon.

Passion dwells within this void.

Avoid me, only see, I’m still there.

Everywhere the wind blows.

Flows ashes to ashes, dust to dust.

Tryst must bring about lexes.

 

Airmail let me be the messenger.

Pretenders can keep their demise.

Wise up, realize that I am here.

Fear the blackness, I’ve been there.

Fair skies and shooting stars.

Jarred by the guilty verdict.

Quick with an analysis, I persist.

Insist the rouge will just disappear.

Shear away the shrouds of doubt.

Mount up Pale Rider, gather your horsemen.

Forgiven, but never forgotten.

Amend the situation of destruction.

Destination set, keep what you kill.

Still the colors of red, black and white.

Site for downcast eyes there is daylight.

Fight on, take flight for what is justice.

 

Destroy me, only I resurrect.

Reflect my presence never dies.

Fly with me, I am no dragon.

Passion dwells within this void.

Avoid me, only see, I’m still there.

Everywhere the wind blows.

Flows ashes to ashes, dust to dust.

Tryst must bring about lexes.
