Wait for the cue
This will all be over soon
We’ll rewrite history
The vultures are circling

Like falling in a dream
A mask for the mind
Left dangling on the rope
Ten thousand eyes below terrified

The distance is killing me
I need the release
Part with your misery

All the pretty ones
Are off sewing their seeds
Trading in their arms
This wicked cavalcade proceeds

While your sleep
Cicadas drone
You dream of death
They sing their woes
And no one knows

The distance is killing me
I need the release
Part with your misery

Gaze up at your vacant heaven
An idle season, a pact now broken
This could be an invitation
Wear your black ribbon

A tempest, a shipwreck, an earthquake


from A Tempest, A Shipwreck, An Earthquake, released July 15, 2013
