lyrics

Write a song; the night is just an angsty adolescent
Right or wrong, the end justifies journey over lesson

Is it a fear that you won’t find your path of breadcrumbs back home?
Is it a wolf that stalks your ‘hood, smells blood, sees red riding through snow?

Spin a story: someone’s glory other than your own
Based on true events or pure invention, set in tone

Is it coincidence we seek to share in richer harmony?
Is it coagulation blocking veins or do deities choose me?

I have a prophecy of promise / progress
in the privacy of my own song
This cannot be pure fantasy

What came first? The earthly egg the chicken star gave birth to
What comes next? The dragons stretch the globe that we never knew

Is it a fear that you won’t hear the answers, asking alone?
Is it the man who carves commandments and enforces them with stones?
