lyrics

float a foot above the surface
make a track that leaves no trace
forge a hard and fast connection
to the sharp emerging shape

beneath the sky hanging vast and fleeting
receive the crumbs that you come across
relief’s to stumble into stillness
defeat’s to live without getting lost

hear the roar of the world in motion
and the lure of unformed song
like a whisper that’s heard in passing
there’s a glimmer and then it’s gone

taking the pulse of each sensation
vision is fading into sight
skipping a stone’s no consolation
it’s drawing a line of flight

in the flush of the turning weather
sense the seeds of a simpler view
through the tears of the blurring landscape
glimpse the limitless made anew

beneath the sky hanging vast and fleeting
receive the crumbs that you come across
relief’s to stumble into stillness
defeat’s to live without getting lost

taking the pulse of each sensation
vision is fading into sight
skipping a stone’s no consolation
it’s drawing a line of flight
