What does it say
that I still enjoy mindless escapism
still revel in the fantasies of my youth
still dream of the simplicity of darkness
and light

The fight between good and evil
the mindless simplicity of a world torn apart
if only it were so easy to tell the difference
between the good and the bad as it is in science-fiction fantasies

in our world there is no black and white
no differentiation between darkness, and light
only a misty haze of gray that hangs in the air
fantasy allows us to see the good guys win
