Pay no mind the vanguard pressure
No sticks left with which to measure now
All of our thoughts, once liquid and porous
Hardened and filled, shatter into pride and love, somehow

Oh my god
I'm bleeding from the neck again
Old bygones
Fleeting doves thrown to the wind

To be alive in this chorus, we find
Our steps play like a verse that lets lost loved ones shine
And they shine
I hope we can find another, hope we can find another way
To love, dance, discover, now

You know we might leave this way
But we won't die, not today

Because there is no such thing
Although we will leave this scene
It's only fragments we see
Just small fragments of you and me

(To be lost in this sound is to remove the now, to find our true being, the space in between, the shadow of God, the salt of the sea)

I once met a man insane
A dapper gentleman with my name
He said, oh, with this life you never know
What's a seed if it can't grow?

We can measure what we're worth
By all the things we've done since birth
But who's to know when we were conceived, or where we'll go?

You can rule the world outside
Or you can rule the world within
There's still an old universe, and it rules you

Philosophy's a nomad
But you'll be damned if you don't meet your goals
And hunt down the ghost that haunts us all

You can pick a point in time
And stretch it to infinity
It frames a portrait of our steps
Everything we see

We can't time the point we pick
That chance is sacred energy
Purpose finds what time forgets
Time forgives what purpose feeds

When the chance is mine to become sound
And stitch in time my offered space
I'll leave with you heaven's theft
Everything I've faced

It's easier to look behind
To light already passed away
A recollection of our steps
The outline of our minds in space

I swear

When we finally fall to the ground
And cut all ties with gravity
The earth remembers every step
Everything in threes

It's easier to fall in love
And throw everything else away
But I'll remember every step
Everything, I swear
