lyrics

simply because you can dream, doesn’t mean that your ideas are more than fleeting
the stars overhead while i sleep, flicker messages that we try to read
we’re simply trying to hear, all the advice that they pour down through our ears
and to our brains

meet me where the sky meets the trees
where the plans that we’ve laid we hope will succeed
like movements in the wake of a ship
we’ll leave behind a glimpse of what we fought and won for

cut up the hills with black veins
that will burst and wash away the world and it’s names
simple geometry, flawed economics of the bad decisions we’ve made
---
one day i’ll be so small
i will fit in the silence
between the letters of our names
---
the colors and shapes and the weight of the shipwrecks that harbor in the ocean waves
painting pictures of ourselves we should acknowledge with all of their somber hues
grasshoppers lie heavy in wait to hear of the outcomes the choices we've made and force upon their heads

crashing into windowpanes clearing all of the images conjured in vain
like a rowboat making way in storms we find our way in a deluge of right and of wrong

uncovered narratives wrapped in their spider-webs despite all their steady use
the ever shrinking universe shows us reflections of where we're from, and head to
