the enormity of these figures... hard to convey in virtual worlds...
you don't have to take my word for it... check it out, you'll see...
you can sense them looking down at you... guardians... working for
your benefit... whether you like it or not... it doesn't matter...
one at a time and it has to be night... broken into pieces always
reassembling... you can swallow them whole... their mouths big as
the universe... at least this universe... i'll tell you more, i'm
breathing...

just when you think you're hollow enough to swallow the world,
and there's nothing left for you to do but cuddle under the walls,
light bursts forth, dissolving everything in a blue-screen wreck,
and everything you ever loved dearly topples and bursts away,
leaving the brilliance of shattered light over and over again,
and your fear oozes out, and you're disappearing a little more,
breaking everything down as you collapse in tears of misery and pain,
and you breathe and there's no air, bleed and there's no blood,
drown and there's no lake, burn, and there's no fire,
and you shout, there's pictures, pictures, pictures,
and you scream, there's magazines and book and plenty to hear,
and you cry, there's places to go and the moon is always full,
and the moon is always bright, and the moon is always there,
