Saving Face (Echoes: Shameless Opaque and Selfless Option)
````Look at you, shedding your whole to random cascades.
Some reflection; reflecting again, digging, diving the dusty database...
Remember when you didn`t need tricks like this? Look at me, you`re not blase to me.
You`re not in a state of raze, it`s merely a phase, a theme. Erase this efface...
What are you trying to save? Your color, your race?
You`re trying to see it their way, but I see you`re still saving face.
Why so afraid of them? This isn`t a race...
Having some doubts, are we? Want to cuddle over it, within my Space?...````
``No thank you... I will not be buried in impatience,
I will not- break my ribbon or my own left hand,
I will not let my colors make me...
I`ll fight for my Love, my Table, my Place.
You`re not my brace- you`re mine!
Not something that I`ll beg and bargain for with my hell bent fury and boundless determination-
you chase. Give me a taste? Piss off!
I light the path for those better, who know better, and the better me.
In the dark, (you, me) we are me.
In the light, (from what I see) there`s too many, of me...
But here, you`re not my ace. I will not lose pace- I refuse to my other, I`ll refuse to you.
I`ll not bend to you again- I won`t deface.
Besides, if you really know me, I`d still stand up to my weaknesses... My Love, My Table, My Place- I`ll fight for what I stand for.
...If you really know me... I`d still respect my embrace.``
