Lyrics

And if you see an end, don’t panic:
Fear is just dissolving
along with all the grievances you made.

There’s nothing to defend
there never was, you’re just evolving.
Watch the shadows mutate as they fade.

The light shines from inside and blesses
all of your dark fictions
all the ways you fumbled time and space

There’s no more need to hide in
clever documents nor diction;
your dream of death has passed without a trace.

These pictures evidence your restlessness to venture somewhere,
yet it seems you went nowhere at all.
And promises and dreams that left you in despair
could not obscure the Call…

(interlude)

The doctor recommends a remedy to believe.
A lover frees you from the ties that bind.
And wisdom only comes to humbles ones who can receive
and folly greets the blind….

So if you fear your end, remember
life is like an ocean:
change your mind and catch another wave.

The light deep down within
survives these shapes and fleeting notions
and idols that made you a petty slave.

I’ll leave you with one sentiment abstracted from my strange time
It’s Christmas, now; I strum here quite content.

The bridge between our minds is held in place by kindly rhyme

not those who court your pain
nor drag you back to shame
to doubts that dim your days
Oh, hear me when I say:

I’ll wait for you…
And if you see an end, don’t panic:
Fear is just dissolving
along with all the grievances you made.
There’s nothing to defend there never was
you’re just evolving.
Watch the shadows mutate as they fade.
The light shines from inside and blesses
all of your dark fictions
and the childish ways you fumbled time and space
There’s no more need to hide in
cever documents nor diction;
your dream of death has passed without a trace.
These pictures evidence your restlessness to venture somewhere,
yet it seems you went nowhere at all.
And promises and dreams that left you in despair
could not obscure the Call…
