your eyes are fixed to eternity/only attend to your spirit's peace/your flesh is rotting away/you can't feed yourself with drugs and prayer/you say this material world gives only pain/I say beatific smiles always change/the last time I saw you/you were standing right here, Matthew/that same book in your hand/wrinkled with time/you cherished every word, every line/now here you are/tired soul/shoes are worn/you spend your time trying to unlearn/each annotated page/and the manic grace/and every single day when you used to say/you'd say/transcend experience/transcend experience/transcend experience/transcendence.../the search for transcendence/it was the catalyst/the search for holiness/it tore you to shreds/no the answers found didn't offer you grace/no the answers found didn't offer you grace/no way/understand/you'll never be that kid again
