lyrics

Some are born to heal
and some are born to fail
Like trees these fates twist around each other
Like wolves their howls resound when no others speak

Alone and lain in leaves
the body of the failed shaman tries to be still
hoping to be unnoticed in the night
waiting for the whispers
The twin trees speak or so he’s told
Listening for anecdotes that mirror his own
and silence keeps him trembling
and silence gets him running back

'twas the words of the sickened souls
that broke his grasp on the healing path
He tried to clean their wounds
tried to sing the demons out
and they all kicked him to the ground
and they all fled as he became infected

“Brother!” he cried
“Where are you now if not in my eyes?
What love do I guard if I no longer feel love at all?
What is this force driving my dagger through their necks?
Am I deserving to hear your voice in mine
Guiding me to resolve
To lay this old dagger down
& end the war with self-incineration?

“Brother can you see me now?
I’ve become so hideous
Instinct to preserve the sacred begins
To turn the blade towards my own chest
Tell me can you heal me now?”

And no divine voice is heard
And healing is forgotten
