So allow me
To introduce myself
I am Anubis
Lord of all things dead

Obedience to my rule
The sole definition
Of virtue and truth

The ontology held
By its own theory
Think by decree
See as I bid you to see

Love for the real
Fools! Idiots!
To question the norm
Abide or be gone

I am the system
Mindless awareness
My maker, my slave
Gravity – his chains

My paradigm
Constitutes their perception

The proposition
Thrives on its conclusion
Hollow words
Their single need

Reason beyond the frame
Still enclosed by another
The final one is mine
Mine and only mine

Anubis, you are wrong
To deem the world your own
The fullness of reality
Narrowed down to what you can see
Life does not rest upon death
They both equate upon me
Reshape your ontology
And leave my children be


from Sophia, track released October 1, 2014
