An endless tunnel made of binary numerals
Each representing a memory
All data is stored on these walls
And considered history
Everything is stored and no choice is given
Motionless thoughts escape my grasp
I speak but no one listens
My mind cannot process all the past

Crystals will form and replace the void
Slowly taking their solid shape
Leaving a mark no one can avoid

Follow your first footsteps
Back to when you were born
Back to the origin
Your human form

Illusory existence preferred over reality
I am left with this duality
If dreams come true
Then nightmares do too
Revealing all uncertainties at hand
I always knew this tunnel would never end

And one by one
They disappear
As if it is outrun
Empty of souvenirs
All the memories
Harvested over the years
It is all gone away
The joys, the fears
Have been led astray
It is inevitable
The doubt, the torment
The past, the present
The human mind
Is made irrelevant
The deterioration
