Dragonfruit Meaning:
Courage / Insight, Genius, Honesty / Arrogance
Visionaire represents bravery in the face of the unknown; the willingness to step into uncertain circumstances to kindle a light in the darkness. It symbolizes a kind of coming-of-age, in which a person without knowledge, wisdom, or compassion begins the long journey towards attaining these qualities.

Its core meaning (Courage) describes one who is aware of their fears but chooses to step towards them anyway, because it is the right course of action; one who knows they may suffer, and understands that they must suffer to grow, to change, and to help themselves and those around them. Its secondary themes (Insight, Genius, Honesty) suggests that courage requires a certain understanding of reality to blossom, and that great ideas and transformations are borne out of self-reflection and honesty with ourselves and others. Its alteration (Arrogance) shows the other side of the coin; courage without compassion can bring about self-righteousness and overconfidence, alienating others in the process.

Jacks are BEGINNERS: Inexperienced, energetic, and courageous. These individuals are lacking in knowledge of the sphere they are exploring but take to the path all the same. They are students, learning through hard work, the help of others, and failure, and may be full of hopes, or doubts.

LYRICS:

Secondary visionaire,
like there’s something in the air
commuting systems into solitary
solutions. Like energy in motion,
let it sink into the ocean of design.

Visionary eyes are ever useful
in the dark.
Lay down, let this verse submit its curses
to the stars.
To the stars.

Secondary visionary,
prismatic eyes.
Calculated, complicated
ocean of design.
Vicious and capricious men have
only just begun to end and
soon the runes will synthesize
our lives.

Visionary eyes are ever useful
in the darkness.
Lay down, let this verse unleash its
curses,
to the stars.
To the stars.
To the stars.
To the stars.
