lyrics

Wake to the room that you’ve grown Space built on dream but of bone Still lost in thought
With a map that’s store bought
No closer to finding a home
War ever fought but unwon
Wings built for blocking the sun We are ancient writ large
Made of dust
Trapped by stars
You cannot begrudge what’s begun
I am stone and pestle
I’m a blemished vessel
Shaped and shadowed everyday All I seek is peace
Never comes with ease Everything will slip away
Clutching this pen like a blade All that is thought can be made But following suit
Just prepares you to lose
And soon we’ll be burned by the shade
As for me
I choose wind
I choose rain
I am more than a weapon of pain
For when all is lost
I’m at ease with the cost
Knowing mine is a debt can’t be paid
I am stone and pestle
I’m a blemished vessel
Shaped and shadowed everyday All I seek is peace
Never comes with ease Everything will slip away

I am born of spring
Tasting everything
Knowing we can never stay
As I write my story
There’s a certain glory
In not knowing what the day will bring
