A Digital Redeemer

And now I have this gift
So I better not stray away
It provides something for me
And though it may be scandalous to say
I have this gift
Now I have something to live for
Trying not to let it drag behind me
Or be doomed to another’s implore

My boundaries stretch
Over this horizon’s stench
As I wander forward
I wander to ward it

And so I have this gift
But I won’t let myself feel ashamed
If I discover that
My analysis is lame
I’ll use my cunning to constrain
That bloated vision’s rotting remains
I never thought the future would be tame
Cause these ain’t no fucking games

Redemption knows my name, too
As I look through your eyes to view
I know that there is much I must improve
My knowledge of soon
Just like you

Beyond that I just gotta learn
What with this I ought to do
Gotta learn what it's good for
And then I gotta show you
That I have a gift cause you must have it too
And we'll help liberate ourselves if we share 'em deep and true
