They are the rock against the current rushing
Taking "No" for an answer, using creativity;
As the capacity that they will change things
They are the witches cast in the fires;
As if using dark magic to create blasphemy
Instead of accepting mediocrity;
Rising above the ashes of humanity
Transcendence into the next beginning;
With inception the genius falls into insanity
A partnership when genius and insanity holds hands.
