lyrics

Sun leaves the day
we forgot our bones till we’re kissed with the breathless
cold, and the light
we forgot these colors die with the darkness
dark, in the dark…

Faith, run away
I have chosen to be bound by these towers
saved it is safe
we forgot the shape of the question still forming
blind, it is blind
keep me safe these castles
feeling feels fearsome bold,
it is bold, and I hold the rungs
of the ladder I’m climbing in the
dark — in the dark
we forgot these colors die without the light
this is light
we forgot to look till we see only absence

Sitting before the moon
she asked for a vision
bless me with sight
and all came in swift and soon
words to the wisdom
blessings of tongue
and tangled ‘tween life and grave
grave was the pulling
life was she calling
tangled ‘tween life and grave
allowing herself to become all her fears
at once was she life and grave
allowing herself to become all her fears
at once was she life and grave
allowing herself to become…

Sun leaves the day
we forgot our bones till we’re kissed with the breathless
cold, and the light
we forgot to look till we see only absence
dark, in the dark
we forgot these colors die without the light
this is light
we forgot the shape of the question still forming
