THE HOUR UPON US

HELD IN A DRY SEASON
DEEPLY ENTANGLED WEBS SLOWLY UNRAVEL
LIFETIMES SURROUNDED BY DUST AND MYTH
CAN NOT BE TALKED AWAY AS DISTANT RUBBLE
DISENGAGED AND DISTRAUGHT
RE-ARRANGING TROUBLE

WITNESSING UPHEAVAL
I STARE AWAY THE GAZE OF EXPLANATION
TEMPERATURES RISE IN THEIR COMFORT ZONE
A SLIGHT DISTURBING LUKEWARM SITUATION
THERE MUST BE A HIDDEN
SIGN OF REVELATION

HERE IN THE MIDST OF THIS MIDNIGHT
CONGREGATION

I JUST TREAD ALONG
BOLD AND STRONG
IN THIS NETHER WORLD
WHERE RIGHT IS WRONG
I’M HOLDING TIDES
BOTH HIGH AND LOW
THERE’S A STORM RAGING IN EVERY MIND
WHEN LOVE IS A GUIDE OF WAR
CHANGING THE OUTLOOK FOR ALL

BOUNDLESS TURMOIL

NESTLING IN BETWEEN
CHUNKS OF TIME

I’LL SIT BACK AND WAIT
FOR A CLEAR SIGN
WHEN SUNFLOWERS WON’T TURN AWAY
COME INTO YOUR OWN AND OBSERVE
WITH THE EYES OF A CROW
FROM A TREETOP BELOW
HOW TO APPREHEND ONCE MORE
UNDER AWNINGS, BROKEN MORNINGS
THE LOVE YOU’VE KEPT INSIDE YOU

RUNNING THE DISTANCE, ALONG SHORES
HIDE IN WELCOME NOOKS, FORESTS AND OLD BOOKS
THIS DAY MAY TOUCH MANY HEARTS

THERE’S A PATHWAY TO GLORY
I HAVE KNOW ALL ALONG
TO REACH FOR CLOUD ELEVEN
BY MEANS OF JUST ONE SONG



WHEN YOUR FACE IS ON THE GROUND
AND YOU STRUGGLE TO STAND UP
THEN CLAIM EVERYTHING YOU’VE BEEN
STRIVING FOR

RIGHT ON THE BRINK OF LIFE
NO TRACE OF HUNGER AND THIRST
DAYS ARE LIKE EONS OF TIME
REVOLVING AROUND BIRTH

ON MY WAY TOWARDS THE SUN
WILL IT EVER GET WARMER

RIGHT ON THE VERGE OF DEATH
WE DISCOVER BEYOND OUR LAST BREATH
OUR LIFE IS IN THE ALONG
NO ONE IS WEAK OR STRONG

UNTIL THEN I’LL SING
I’LL BE ANNOUNCING SPRING
DON’T EVER FORGET THAT
ONLY SIDEPIECES MAKE YOU FEEL
LIKE YOU’RE ONE AS WELL

GENERATIONS DOWN
THE ATTEMPTS, FAR TOO MANY
TRUTH BE TOLD NOW FEEL
THE HOUR UPON US
