Pupper master, you held my heart and made me sing
I was plastered along the wall for all to see
See how my eyes grow softer, smiling at every breath you take
See how you carry onward, like the sun that rises at daybreak

I've been thinking existence is aimless
Escaping with Sartre, heroic determination
But where did you come from, even if I were determined not to
The road forged from my own hands, its path is twisted
My stance mystified, leading not where I want but where I ought to go

Preceding essence, determined to be shaped by what he does
My will was bested by what I thought did not lie above
Listening to your sweet laughter, lovelocked to every word you speak
Berating myself after, how does your glow make me so weak?

My old thoughts are dead, inside my minds is born anew
I ought turn my head, deny my heart that yearns for you
