Navigator: - “Let us head for the horizon. We will explore the universal divine. It will be our final journey, no turning back from what we seek to find. The water is our carpet ride, our silent raging guide, our road of yellow bricks to stride. And I need you to be with me. I need you by my side. The wind possesses every single move, directs the waves that are pushing us forward. It takes us closer to a truth we have lost. This is not about us anymore. This is about everything. It takes us closer to the truth. Deceit we’ll overcome. Defeat we’ll not experience. No regret, no doubt, no bitter repenting. No turning back, the outcome is all redeeming. Where we go our questions won’t stay unanswered. We’ll find a peace that lasts eternally.”
Wind - Oh traveller, I will find you. In oceans wide there’s still no place to hide.” Navigator: - “I don’t know where it came from, but I’m sure it won’t let go. So be brave my dear, for we are being tested. We have done more for less, underwent worse for less.” Wind: - “Oh traveller, I will break you. In oceans deep no one will hear you weep.” Navigator: - “Try to think of how it will feel, what we will find when we get there and realize that we’re looking straight into its eye. Our path’s just begun. There’s no need to run. We’ll push through this nightmare. Our fear is all gone.” Wind: - “Traveller, beware of what mother tells you!”
Navigator: - I painted pictures of it in my mind, saw it all so clearly. But something’s wrong. This was not supposed to be like this. Tell me, my dear, what happened? It went all wrong. This was not supposed to end like this. Tell me, my dear, what’s wrong. Where is the sun? My dear, what happened to the daylight? I am sinking, slowly sinking down. All hope seems gone. My dear, where are you? I feel a hand that’s pulling me to drown. I curse this world. All I asked for is a little light. But all I got was darkness. Lost in the storm, all I asked for is a little sight. And then it took my sun. Oh wind, what have you done? A flickering red reminds me of that sun that finally sets. Wind: - Oh traveler, don’t you see that this is not about you anymore? Navigator: - I curse this world for what it was, for what it is, for what it will be. I curse this world with my last words, with my last breath.
Navigator (deluged) - My dear, we finally made it. We’re close enough to taste it. And I finally see. Our odyssey is over. Oh I came home to you, fell into and dissolved in you. With all my heart I’ll stay with you for good and listen closely... What have we done to you? Mother, your rage is endless. Tortured for so long, spirit disfigured in pain. Mother, your rage is understood. To you I promise, I swear that this will have an end today. I am your catalyst, your mouthpiece and your reaper, tearing down the cage that binds you. To you I promise, to you I swear that this will end. I speak your tongue; I burn with your flame. Stay with me forever. Abused in every way, but it will end today. Hate will rise. They will see there is no place to run. I will state their final hour. Choke them, drown them, burn them out for all they’ve done to you. And no exception will be made. For inception, for corruption they’ll fall victim to destruction. And you’ll be free forever.
