I discern a subtle stream
Converging in the quiet
Just behind the silence
My mind has slipped inside it
I can feel a past being fed me
A second hand future's misled me
Second hand futures misled me
I feel a fate being fed me
To devour my memories
In a single sitting
Seems the only means
The only means befitting
A reunion with my beloved
A reunion with the sun
A reunion with the stars
A reunion with the sun
Though i know
Endless dawn awaits
Still I rotate at the gate
To watch my life escape
Never turning as it runs
My reunion with the sun
Never turning as it runs
I discern a subtle stream
Converging in the quiet
Just behind the silence
My mind has slipped inside it

    General CommentI think it describes some sort of departure from reality. and maybe a departure from conventional song writing as well. I think the title "departure" works on several different levels.

    General CommentMaybe dying ..a near death experience. Going to the light. Your entire life flashing before your eyes. Ego dissolution.
