Run with Me

Run with me
To free your imagination
Touch the golden chalice
Enter the dark wood without foreboding and
Taste the forbidden fruit

Run with me
To find the gods
Dispel the myths
Create the rumors and
Sacrifice the lambs

Run with me
Through the Valley of Death
Up the Mountain of Dreams
To find the beauty in the sun

Run with me
To breath the aromatic bounty of treasure ships
Burning in the Bay of Hypocrites
Fanned by the winds of self-righteousness

Run with me
To find your innocence
Suck deep the breath of life
From those that live to die

Run with me
And fear not
