lyrics

This soul is amorphous
glowing through nature in strange patterns
desperate follower, I wandered untraceably far from home
Lured by its trail – flashes of gold
lured to the mountain & lulled to sleep

This was the one day no child should have slept
the caravan had come
to take those marked at birth for sacrifice in the River of Muninn

I was among the marked
The ring of youth
Appointed to be drowned at dawn on the chosen day
but I slept through the conjuring
Slept through the drums & horns
I would have been a guardian
Watching the grace of wisdom blossom through the ages
Instead I watched the stones & torches of the village banish me

Self disintegrated – Passion untarnished – There must be another way

The entity I was chasing – The vicar of my failure
Expands upon my grief a notion – glory in the wake of abandonment

The river is still mine to take
The soul is still mine to guard
Immortal passion in fast aging skin
My hands were made to hold the wind
