Mortaljive: The Rest is Silence

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

Depoe Bay

the family gathered near the water
with their shoes held in their hands
sand between their toes and daughters
the sun was setting on the land

they'd come to set him free forever more
scatter remains at the end of day
they had driven to the silent shore
and set him free past Depoe Bay

(chorus)
goodbye father, goodbye darling
goodbye to you my friend
after spirit has departed
only ashes in the wind
we have gathered at the end of day
to set you free past Depoe Bay

the harbor ain't that much to see
not very big and rather plain
the bridge above a shadow now
another ghost lost in the rain

a note is clenched inside his hand
one he wrote so long ago
no one left to which it matters
and nowhere left to go

(chorus)
goodbye father, goodbye darling
goodbye to you my friend
after spirit has departed
only ashes in the wind
we have gathered at the end of day
set you free past Depoe Bay

sometimes thunder stops the heart a bit
sometimes wind comes rushing by
sometimes it's all so beautiful
sometimes it ain't a lie

(chorus)
goodbye father, goodbye darling
goodbye to you my friend
after spirit has departed
only ashes in the wind
we have gathered at the end of day
to set you free past Depoe Bay
