about

Dedicated to my dear friend Daniel.

The lyrics are something of a fantasy story, about a recently deceased person speaking with his friends in their dreams, bringing them all to sleepwalk into a clearing in the forest and build a fire together, commencing a ritual of spiritual mending in their time of grief.

lyrics

Sojourner speaks in throatless waves
Soulburner keeps clandestine pit aflame
Telepathic twin souls
The starbound and the sleepwalker
Feeding fire – Sensations of – Birth and Death – In one breath
Mortal man granted omnipotence
Sets my demons aside
Lets my third eye come alive
More sleepers drift out from shelter
Their untarnished vines climb the trees of the clearing
Luminous chapel walls
Violet and teal fibers
Buried strength unearthed
Together for once we are
Turning hate to hope – fear to passion – dreams to servitude – honoring you
A sudden rupture in the hum
A dimming of the violet
Has the gathering been seen by waking human eyes?
Never! ‘Twas the final strands of fear
Departing through the blaze – crossing over
Woodsmoke depicts the mortal coil
Traveler’s benevolent eyes
From which fractals of sorrow sprawl
Founding power clarified

When will I awake? Will the memory stay? Will we ever meet again?
Never apart…remember this dream…It’s time to go…

Four winds of unbridled passion have become
Four winds of unfathomable grief
The starbound one has indeed prepared me
This is your task - your alchemy – Storms to silence – Darkness to light
