Maxwell's Demon



A child falls down at critical mass,
Coming home to see his home has collapsed.
Maxwell's demon takes a hold of his hand,
When God is the link between Telos and Man.
But who's able to stand when Atlas lets go,
When your world is gone and you're in the dark all alone?
The stars in the sky can't guide you back home,
Because they're somewhere else and all else is unknown.
The secret, the sign, and the only true light
Are located precisely deep down inside.
They are whats real, what matter in life.
All you must do is have faith that They're right.
