Churches, steeples
And ant-like peoples
Sky-piercing towers
Portray its power
Speckles of residence
Unveil its essence
Leaving me within its walls
Walk these timeless halls
Walk these timeless halls
Within these walls

Hearts colliding
Senseless hiding
Generic cowards
Confine its power
Oceans smiling (breathing softly)
With hands providing (breathing slowly)
Nurturing flowers
Pollinate the hours

Speckles of residence
Unveil its essence
Leaving me within these walls
A choir acceptant
Confines its essence
Leaving me within these walls

Snap back and subtract
Recoil and retract
(Feeding the flame)
Snap back and subtract
Recoil and retract
(Paving the way)

    General CommentVery sweet and beautiful imagery, as any true visual artist would invoke <3. Anyway, my interpretation of these lyrics is that religion can be deceiving-it can set a trap that one can easily be lured into--but the narrator in this situation hopes to regain his freedom. Gavin, keep the emotion going--don't EVER stop being intriguing. :)
