Truth Drives Me into Madness

Trinity... Come on Trinity. The security guard leans over the window edge, shirt strained over a beer gut, hat that fits too tight to fall off and badge over his heart.

catch me as I fall
say you're here and it's all over now
speaking to the atmosphere
no one's here and I fall into myself
this truth drives me into madness
I know I can stop the pain if I will it all away

Aim Trinity. Fire, Trinity. Aim at that badge and fire.

don't turn away
don't give into the pain
don't try to hide...
...don't close your eyes...
...never sleep never die

I'm falling and counting the floors. I know one of two things will happen. Either I'm gonna somehow find the strength to spin into a somersault and run out of trouble, or I go splat.

I'm frightened by what I see
but somehow I know there's much more to come
immobilized by fear
and soon to be blinded by tears...

Neo should have known telling me to stay out wasn't gonna work. You needed a hacker. You needed me, Neo. Come on, Trinity, aim, fire.

don't turn away
don't give into the pain
don't try to hide...
...don't close your eyes...
...never sleep never die

Neo now! I know that bullet's hit home. I know this is the dream you couldn't tell me about, that stopped you sleeping. If you'd told me, maybe I could have... what? Would I have done anything differently? Neo, I'm losing. I can't fight anymore. I can't do this... I can't.

...whispered voices at my ear
death before my eyes
lying next to me I fear
she beckons me shall I give in
upon my end I shall begin
forsaking all I've fallen for I rise to meet the end

And you just scoop me out of the air, land on a roof, tear out the bullet and hold me. And I hesitate: all those things I need to tell you and the words fall from my mind. Trinity, focus. Neo. I'm not scared anymore. Why can't I say it? Because the weight of your head on my shoulder says it all.
