Life cycles

Around the time the heaviness set in,
Where selfish begged a transition,
I was beaten and numbed,
So makers mold me anew now.
I was waiting, living for the infliction?
The killer instincts severed,
But weighing down my body to ready me,
For the journey.
So I leave now with a lightness,
Which surprises me,
To the next.

The song link Retrograde by James Blake is to me like a journey of self discovery led by an internal voice; just my interpretation as I have no idea what he wrote it about. If my internal voice sounded as intense as Blake's I might listen to it more :)
