lyrics

On the forest floor
Quieting an ageless year
I try to fall asleep
Restless as my brother watches over me
And now that morning has come
I hardly remember anything
I only recall the leaves
I only remember they were dark and thick and beautiful that year

Memories are made of soft truth
Collapsing underneath the weight
Of everything we’d rather believe

I know that you are
Older than these endless rings
I try to trace you back
Further but it only ever ends at me
And I ask what I could call
The ghost of your history
Oh nothing at all
Their names are but empty words that will remain unspoken now

So tonight we mark the passing of
The ages that have scattered all
And what about the ghost that we made?
Sometimes I’m almost sure his breath
Is floating in this room to this day

The air was so thick with remorse
Preparing itself to be born
Cold wind was shaking the door
Gravity pulled from the floor
But I awoke

And I said, It’s time
And the darkened candles gave their smoke back
To the night
And the sky was open wide and now
There’s a bed of roses
That blooms beneath the evergreens
Where we once stood
Where we once stood
Now who lies there yes
Who lies there tonight?

(On and on and on and all the way back down
It still feels the same
So I’ll go on and on and on and all the back down
It still feels the same
So I will go)
