Light guides the way
We follow blindly
But it shows us what we see
For the light guides the way

But the road we walk
Is nothing more than a dim glow
The light shines off the road
Glistening the way
The right way.

But the right way is black
How can we achieve our destination
When what we follow only makes it harder to follow?

Break away from the light,
Stop following blindly
For the light is what blinds you
You can never achieve when you cannot see.

When the darkness goes away
Another light
A light that guides the way.
