Mortaljive: The Rest is Silence

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

In the darkness we will shine


i was happy in the forest
i was scared beyond belief
every ray of golden sunshine
came to me just like a thief
came to me just like a blessing
just before demanding rain
when you live inside a forest
you don't need no mystery train

i was turning in the gyre
i was hunting in the dark
something followed in the distance
something searching for a mark
something searching for its supper
the hunger leads the way
i am bark and moss in thunder
i am more than you can say

hold me closer than the moonlight
fill me up, come taste my wine
feel the earth, kiss me in summer
in the darkness we will shine


we were lost inside the hours
we were hidden in the grove
just sit still and start to listen
come and see what no one knows
come and see what's not forgotten
in our bones and in our veins
the blood that flows throughout the garden
you don't need no mystery train

hold me closer than the moonlight
fill me up, come taste my wine
feel the earth, kiss me in summer
in the darkness we will shine

do you feel your roots beneath you?
do you see the sky above?
taste the water, I beseech you
and forever be in love
and forever is a folly
for the stream keeps running by
in the evening all is declaring
it is great to be alive

we were lost inside the hours
we were hidden in the grove
just sit still and start to listen
come and see what no one knows
come and see what's not forgotten
in our bones and in our veins
the blood that flows throughout the garden
you don't need no mystery train

hold me closer than the moonlight
fill me up, come taste my wine
feel the earth, kiss me in summer
in the darkness we will shine

i was happy in the forest
i was scared beyond belief
every ray of golden sunshine
came to me just like a thief
came to me just like a blessing
just before demanding rain
when you live inside a forest
you don't need no mystery train

i was turning in the gyre
i was hunting in the dark
something followed in the distance
something searching for a mark
something searching for its supper
the hunger leads the way
i am bark and moss in thunder
i am more than you can say

hold me closer than the moonlight
fill me up, come taste my wine
feel the earth, kiss me in summer
in the darkness we will shine
