lyrics

Drifting in a daze
Sun-soaked scatters
Writing off the page
Hopes in tatters
Soon...soon
Locked up tight and nothing's getting to me
All the same I can't help feeling doomy
Soon...soon
Man the battle stations for the fight
Knowing that this time
We might be right

Time slowly
Swims under
Pinpoints of light
Tide draw the shore nearer
Life-forming light
And you
You start new
Begin again

Inward glimmer
Spiral sparkle dancing
Framed in falling dusk and pitted shadow
Steeped in sugar
Lunar pool reflections
Ripples lace the pace of cryptic contours
Pylon, fill the sky
Long-questing sentry
Piling on what questions seek to answer
Pound for pound
Forgotten, overtaken
Dazzle garland darkness
Elevating

Stella starlight
Twilight boon companion
Seven skies of roaring borealis
Long-sequestered
Guardian of April
Keep the summer eyes
Of isles' light tranquil
Sharpen all the dull
Discarded fragments
Naming all the nameless
Forms and figures
Freshening the faded
Jade of embers
Fastening the clasp of loneliness
Blazing through the glades of late December
Hearken back the maps of undone stations
Shield the heavens' bright escaping silver
Feathers scale the skies
With trails of mercy
