The search for innocence

Something I've come to learn about myself. A lot of my favorite music symbolizes a powerful destructive being searching for innocence.
So lets take Bryan El's "Solaris" for example:
As the song plays, you can imagine a Giant plucking a flower. One of my favorite scenes in a movie came from the neverending story when the rock biter says "they look like, big, good, strong hands... don't they?"
Even in the book I'm writing, the main character was resurrected into a cybernetic body designed for future war and destruction, but his inner conflict is that he doesn't view himself as a destructive person and can't bring himself to harm people. All my life I've felt this way. I'm not exactly sure why. I'm not the largest person but I have in the past made people cry from things I say, and I've asked several people if they find me intimidating, usually because my eye contact alone turns people away as it often looks hateful when I don't mean it to be. Much like bigfoot yelling "pretty kitty!" and chasing a cat scaring it away.
