Mortaljive: The Rest is Silence

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

Run Like Me



set me loose from the ancient spring
watch me run in the breaking day
hold my heart in the rays of the sun
i am riding until i'm done

see me now, to the side of light
a mere wisp that rides away
turn around and see the world
hold out your hand and touch the pearl

life is green and life is brown
right side up and upside down
would you break it to fit the mold
you burn your fires yet you are cold
the fires burn
yet you are cold
my eyes are dark, my legs are strong
i run like a river, down to the sea
run like a river
run like me

the days are dying into the west
and yet i ride before the storm
none can catch this winter beast
the trees are still, they sleep in peace

set me loose from the ancient spring
watch me run in the breaking day
hold my heart in the rays of the sun
i am riding until i'm done

life is green and life is brown
right side up and upside down
would you break it to fit the mold
you burn your fires yet you are cold
the fires burn
yet you are cold
my eyes are dark, my legs are strong
i run like a river, down to the sea
run like a river
run like me
