Ply my body, cold as ice Solace here, but I saw the first Light come over me, light console me Oh come back, close are the windows, bare… And when you come back home, ahhhh I … Listen to the river, it will guide you my door .. No sign, cold as ice… Solace here and no need to fight…
2.
Pacing out this hallway Paper cup and bouquet Picking up the pieces of your mind Once you were a soldier Love, you had a good war But noone can defeat the march of time Sanctify this silence, can you hear me ? Magnify these hours so I see clearly … Remember when we walked in Santa Agnes garden Tungsten sun was blistering the sky Three taps and we’re there again, Far from these white walls, I never Thought this would be how we’d say goodbye Sanctify this silence, can you hear me ? Magnify these hours so I see clearly … Avalanche descending, This is not the ending This is not the ending
3.
I am one of many, many we are one Hurled upon the ocean, howl of a storm Oh these nights, we have cursed and we have cried Tangled in the reeds before we’re swallowed by the sky Here I’m one of many, and as many we stand Face to face with all we cannot alter or command North star’s roaming, sun won’t rest Scatter stones and feathers, turn the earth blood red
