Mortaljive: The Rest is Silence

There is no still point in all the Universe, and that is the rock upon which I stand

Teach Me of the Silent Rose

teach me of the silent rose
nobody knows
nobody knows

take me to the silver lake
let me dapple like the water
daughter of the clouds
she rains and rains and rains

what about tomorrow
what about the sorrow
what about the sun
investigate the flower
count the petals and then you run

teach me of the laughing moon
nobody knows
nobody knows

rocks upon the lonely mountain
water in the fountain
just like disasters in the book
everybody took
everything they could
knock on holy wood

what about tomorrow
what about the sorrow
what about the sun
investigate the flower
count the petals and then you run

everybody agrees
and get on their knees
begging for an hour
begging for the breeze

teach me of the silent rose
nobody knows
nobody knows

take me to the silver lake
let me dapple like the water
daughter of the clouds
she rains and rains and rains

what about tomorrow
what about the sorrow
what about the sun
investigate the flower
count the petals and then you run

teach me of the laughing moon
nobody knows
nobody knows

rocks upon the lonely mountain
water in the fountain
just like disasters in the book
everybody took
everything they could
knock on holy wood
