I'm turning out the lights To remember how to see Until a renaissance takes place And resuscitates the color of paint and divinity As if God hid the building blocks Of every beautiful thing In this game of hide-and-seek I can't help but think that ordinary has swallowed the key Bodies fashioned out of dirt and dust For a moment we get to be glorious Ice sculptures adorned in light Sand castles built tall in between the tides Maybe I'm hiding behind metaphor Maybe my heart needs to break to be sure One day I'll wear it all on my sleeve The insignificant with the sacred unique But I've fallen in love with a ghost I lost my balance when I needed it most This blurry photograph is proof Of what I'm not sure but it feels like truth I'm stuck swimming in shadows down here It's been forever since I came up for air Flashlight in hand determined to find Authenticity only poetry could even begin to try to describe Bodies fashioned out of dirt and dust For a moment we get to be glorious What if we already are Who we've been dying to become In certain light I can plainly see A reflection of magnificence Hidden in you Maybe even in me * - These songs are written from the perspective of the enneagram personality typing system. There are 9 types, 1-9. This song is about the 4. The Enneagram of Personality is the categorization of nine interconnected personality types. This song is for the Individualist, or Type Four. TYPE'S DESCRIPTION. “Fours are self-aware, sensitive, and reserved. They are emotionally honest, creative, and personal, but can also be moody and self-conscious. Withholding themselves from others due to feeling vulnerable and defective, they can also feel disdainful and exempt from ordinary ways of living. They typically have problems with melancholy, self-indulgence, and self-pity. At their Best: inspired and highly creative, they are able to renew themselves and transform their experiences”. — The Enneagram Institute founded by Don Riso and Russ Hudson (USA).
