lyrics

Perched upon the riverbed
Tears upon her lash
A song, yet unheard
Clings to her tongue, amidst salt and ash

She reaches towards her shoulder
Fleeting moments pass
Though time wavers
This feeling holds her within its grasp

Taking its toll on her reason
Leading the blind to see

You cave under the center of a limitless divide
And you pray for the unspoken, as you wade amongst the tide
Now carefree in your loneliness, without treason toward your doubt
Distant in your memories, lost forever now

Sadness is not her stranger
Kindness, not her friend
But time seems to know
Which of these will prevail in the end

How can this pain exist
She wonders to herself
If only she had
The strength she would need to fight and resist

Taking its toll on her reason
Leading the blind to see

You cave under the center of a limitless divide
And you pray for the unspoken, as you wade amongst the tide
Now carefree in your loneliness, without treason toward your doubt
Distant in your memories, lost forever now

Suffocate the fear that holds you
And fight for this
Breathe beneath the waters that wash over you and you’ll see
Flight in your destiny’s hold

Taking its toll on her reason
Leading the blind to see

You cave under the center of a limitless divide
And you pray for the unspoken, as you wade amongst the tide
Now carefree in your loneliness, without treason toward your doubt
Distant in your memories, lost forever now

Lost Forever now
Lost Forever now
