You’d think it be easy to watch people from outside.
With the minutiae of massive habits hacking their minds.
The ability to create heaven on Earth not in their design.
We Linians, with our secret history of protecting the passive,
Realize that we volunteer our lives to keep the world turning
while realizing that their limit may never stop churning.
But that’s the curse of reacting like a volunteer
You’re signing up to be a maintenance worker.
Behind the scenes a Linian is an anti-puppeteer
We don’t keep humanity moving with strings, but with vigilant veneer.
We’re your neighbors, your co-workers, your military.
But we’re not your leaders or any sort of authority.
We’re the thieves in the night that steal your destruction
From forces you don’t know by divine instruction
And that order is one that we follow through
Because if we slip, you will no longer be you.
