Imperfect perfection
The bars that hold us
Offers our being
The pillars of order

Like laws of nature
We seek convergence
Absolute theory
Comfort in irony

We find ourselves as peons
Within an unfounded thought
Put to use
Towards a purpose unspecified
Our worth determined
By our willingness to abide
Slaves to a father
Devoid of heart and mind

We work in our own sweat
Labour presents a right to own
Yet in the end
We are the ones who are owned

What is the worth of mankind to this earth

Our only worth
Is the bond between you and I
In the absence of God
Ours to define
The sum of it all
Valued by the eye that can see
It is all worthless
Without you and me


from Sophia, track released October 1, 2014
