TesseracT - Of Matter - Proxy lyrics

I'm a surrogate. I'm archetypal and itinerant.
I'm your excuse to long for a superior.
I will undertake. I will overcome.

Imperfection you will find. [They're close to us, they're after us, they're here]
This endeavour is not mine. [You subject me to the daggers you conceive]

I'm stronger than I was before, thus you reinforce these walls. I can't fight you anymore!
Threatened by the open door. All the chances I ignore. I can't stand still anymore.

The day is done. Nothing left to say. Resting head in hands. Wishing I had known my place.
To take a stand, the errand of a fool. I'm not to reprimand. I'm here to help you through.

Is nothing like it seems? Living in this secret through a dream.
It's dark and I can't see. Gather broken shards of self-esteem.
