lyrics

HYDRA

In harmony with all things
My words blanket the earth from dusk till dawn dancing like they’re dust in the wind
Sun of the morning – dew on the leaves like silk and diamonds
I’m in the woods with ten terra cotta bridesmaids
The hidden sanctuary, cosmic silence with no limits
I’m piper to the gods, vocal chords confuse the mimic
Holy rock with a hole in it, the spirit in a stone
Raven in the night, the obsidian rose
My students draw circles in the sand, cross their chests like seatbelts
Odes to Diana’s Bow transmitted through seashells
At the shore, I pull the whole school out like fishermen
Sparkling like winter gems in the faces of withered men
As I walk into the living water and never stop
I’m a siren on a rock, rhythm and blues within a song
Voice resounds like stars shimmering far away from city smog
In the darkness of the night, see the lightness of the gods

Maybe they’ll come back, one of these starry nights
Blazing on the back of a comet, conquer the dark with light
So rest your weary head, limbs like lead
In the whistling of the winds of change, I hope that you’ll be ready
Maybe they’ll come back, one of these starry nights
Blazing on the back of a comet, conquer the dark with light
So rest your weary head, limbs like lead
In the whistling of the winds of change, I hope that you’ll be ready

Saltier than seawater and I crystallize
Like broken ice fragments gleaming in the pale moonlight
The words we leave behind studied under lens and stored inside the mind
My life spent following celestial design
Reflecting our shine like luminaries
Past the crown, through the illusion of bone, blood and capillary
The flaws in human laws pit one brother against another
My heart expands…and grows vast as the cloudy sky above us
Other night I watched god pretending to be asleep
Being awake is pressure, she’d rather manufacture dreams
Hold hands with blessed followers with opportunity portals
And through deep sleep, weave landscapes for drowsy mortals
Now my cauldron boils forever
Waves like a thousand wild white horses stampeding untethered
Reflecting on days past, present is a gift until it’s gone
In the darkness of the night, see the light come from beyond

Maybe they’ll come back, one of these starry nights
Blazing on the back of a comet, conquer the dark with light
So rest your weary head, limbs like lead
In the whistling of the winds of change, I hope that you’ll be ready
Maybe they’ll come back, one of these starry nights
Blazing on the back of a comet, conquer the dark with light
So rest your weary head, limbs like lead
In the whistling of the winds of change, I hope that you’ll be ready
