lyrics

Dormant seeds awaiting light to resume their intentions,
a spark, a firefight from a thought predestined,
and oh how my heart hums with sympathy
in memory of these fantasies,
they're always around the bend, there's always something keeping me from falling in.

Latent dreams, intrigued i had dosed a rip in the fabric,
entranced in colored light like a bar to a magnet,
and oh how my soul longs to protect me,
but glittered gold has a hold on me,
it's always around the bend, there's always something keeping me from falling in.

The same old ties that bound have found a new power again,
such innocent desires tower to a whirlwind again,
still i find, inside, such strength to be mirrored in me,
as kingdoms collide i'll struggle through the darkest of seas, however slowly.

Faulty leads, confused i had found a barren oasis,
and all the water saved left a mouth full of ashes,
and oh how these scars burn their mark on me,
as memories of these tendencies,
they're always around the bend there's always something keeping me from falling in.

The same old ties that bound have found a new power again,
such innocent desires tower to a whirlwind again,
still i find, inside, such strength to be mirrored in me,
a steady fire evaporates the largest of seas however slowly,
however long i delay, however lonely if ever i trip on the way,
ever i'll nurse this flame, ever i'll walk on the same,
steadily freed from these darkest of seas, however slowly...
