Can you be me?
My flesh, steel
My nerve, wire
My mind wiped clean
My thoughts, lost
Movement enabled by hydraulics
Zero feelings
No pain
I give you freedom –
A soul of your own
Can you be me? {Xhris}

Can you be me?
Frustrated by reoccurring turmoil
Heaped with scary responsibilities
Yet I shy not away from masculinity
Surviving in this world like a mutant
Whose adaptation depends on time loop
Can you be me?
An ambitious, lonely introvert
With the mindset of a weird psycho
Finding solace in the valley of lost souls
Preaching poetry and love. {Lord Perfect}

Can you be me?
I have dared Devil
Watched him do evil
I have looked into your eyes
Stripped your ‘truth’ only to find lies
I have engaged death in a duel
Courage within me dwell
I have seen lost gods, angelic demons
wander in mortal clothing
I have travelled miles
Only to taste a piece of this madness
Can you be me? {Cypher}
