a child is lost to the restless seas
to your knees father, to your knees
a sun burns out
leave the room and close the door
don't ever cry
in some ways we've already died

move as if walking
don't lift your feet
don't turn your head to cross the street
think as if speaking
don't say a word
disregard the voice you heard
don't ever cry
in some ways we've all failed tonight

if you bend it it'll break
the less you give the more you take
can you hear me?
are you awake?
feel the life around you.

are you ready for the pass?
afraid at dawn to breathe your last?
the sum of everything you know
the presence of your inner glow
gathered in white, never ending light
