Mortaljive: The Rest is Silence

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

Love is There



there are days still sitting
in crates out in back
we ran out of forklifts
we could not move the stacks

there are nights in the boxes
no longer for sale
the moon and the ocean
a bucket and pail
and waves that are lapping
as we let fly the sails
we tack in the dark of the night
on an endless sea

the stars are overhead
above a child's heart
we are sailing beyond the dream
after a promising start
and when we wake up
in the sand at the end of time
we'll all be doing fine
done with time

i am done with time
i am done with time
take my hand tonight
the stars will shine
we are all that's left
we are all that's left
and yet the stars will shine
and that's divine

the river won't turn around
and drop us off back there
where the days were long
and you had flowing hair
i've seen the old men cry
when their women die
i have to tell you
love is there

the stars are overhead
above a child's heart
we are sailing beyond the dream
after a promising start
and when we wake up
in the sand at the end of time
we'll all be doing fine
done with time

i am done with time
i am done with time
take my hand tonight
the stars will shine
we are all that's left
we are all that's left
and yet the stars will shine
and that's divine
