of blindness and subsequent seers lyrics – emperor

ever behind me.
rise a shadow taller than i.
yet, with a certain resemblance.
how many times do i have to contemplate my own reflection.
and say: i have been blind?
i have been blind.
yet, i saw the search and dreams of my rejection.
walking behind me.
every time, i am bound to have been granted the gift of better sight.
but my anxiety, built one more brick.
fearing again to choose the wrong step.
vaguely i remember the blurred eyes of someone small.
these strangers often come as blind.
a troubled mind i left behind.
yet, was it i of my shadow walking in the past?
