We are now measured

The story we have heard before
There once was a girl who hated herself because she was blind. She hated everyone except her boyfriend . She always said that if she could only see the world again, she would marry him
One day, someone donated their eyes and she could see everything. The boy asked her, "Now, when you can see the world, will you marry me?"
The girl was shocked when she realized that her boyfriend was blind too, and refused to marry him.
With great sorrow the boyfriend moved away from the city, and doing so, he left behind a letter to his girlfriend:
"Take care of my eyes."

It was not enough that they felt it in their hearts
mankind just wanted to see the truth with their own eyes in order to believe it
therefore they wished long and hard to see, and in exchange they wanted to give away their hearts. 
They desired it so much that the Master accepted their offer 
and sent them the eyes of truth so that they could see it all
but there was no heart left to understand
 [] [] []
Can you see the highest mountain on top of our landscape
twisting and turning in pain
nightmares about volcanoes.
Can you smell the green memories of forests
fading away
Can you hear the rising oceans heartbeats
How turmoil lay siege around her fingers
Soon all the memories we've built along our coast will wash away 
And one day we will wonder
How easy it was to avoid
the tsunami
