watch the shadow lines fade away
brother you will return
let your lion heart cleave the waves
brother you will return
in the breaking light

leave the battlefield, leave her hand
brother you will return
for we are a woven thread, find the strand
brother you will return
in the breaking light

so listen to the darkness, listen to the patterns
listen to the breathing sea
listen to the colors, carry them inside you
they will bring you back to me
in the breaking light

feel the ground beneath sweep and sway
brother we will return
feel the hollow dream slip away
brother we will return
in the breaking light

so listen to the darkness, listen to the patterns
listen to the breathing sea
listen to the colors, carry them inside you
they will bring you back to me
listen to the sirens, listen to the heartbeat
listen to the turning tide
listen to the murmurs, carry them inside you
‘til we’re on the other side
in the breaking light

    Song MeaningAt her concert on 10/2/13, Vienna said that this song started when she and Alex Wong were sitting in his kitchen playing with glasses of water. They started talking about how water can divide or separate people and keep them apart.

    My Interpretationthis song makes me think of how this life is a mere shadow and a hollow dream (or even a battlefield for - some of us).
