Hide your real face. Run away from the truth. I will look through your masks, see the worst in people.

But you! You tricked me. Bravo! A moment of weakness... I saw the world through your eyes, became one of you. One with no real depth of the soul, simple, ordinary and disgusting.

I accept the truth once again, see through you. I look into your soul as I reach for my memories of you. I see you. An ugly, disgusting, ordinary, selfish organic machine.

So, I flip the switch and move on.

Truth, like fire burns everyone, everything alike...

    But what is the narrator's real face? Fleshy? Mechanical? Energy? Since they can "flip the switch," they must be able to move on unencumbered by emotion.
