Lyrics

Reading a man who says
Don’t bother reading
Tells me I got all the answers I need
 
In the absence of cleverly positioned words
I cling to the fingertips of the spirit world
Intellectual understanding versus practice, you know
At arms length
 
With watchful eye and that sort
The truth is, my only glimpse came from
Being high on a rooftop
And so I climb again
 
I don’t know what this crap is
What I am so beautifully trying to say
Is that I saw an angel
Two or three nights past
 
An illumined cloud unlocked the moon
Brought forth a specific light
When before there were only fingerprints
 In a darkened tiny room
 
Now I was disturbed, looking for the undisturbed
And looking on with hatred
Inward to the bone
The angel opened up the clouds
The moonlight reached the heart of the waves
And a dead phrase came alive
Until I killed it with a doubt
 I said “it’s
not the realization,
but that it didn’t defile me”
And there she came to smile on the quote
 
We see
But only for a moment
We bleed
If only to define
These prison walls
Where you feel protected
They are only delusion
In the not so far behind
 
For a moment there was stillness
The light was touching everything
She sailed the northern sky
And disbanded to the south
 
An angel in the northern sky
Before I thought to wonder why
For a moment there was stillness
No faith and no doubt
 
We see
But only for a moment
We bleed
If only to define
These prison walls
Where you feel protected
They are only delusion
In the not so far behind
 
The hunter and the hunted have always marched in common time
