lyrics

White ​owl
steel ​key
old ​growth ​on ​trees

I ​am ​lost
Again ​confined ​by ​vines ​that ​smother ​life
To ​carry ​theirs
And ​through ​the ​door
Young ​eyes ​will ​feast ​on ​jungles ​with ​no ​name
Index ​out
To ​point ​and ​make
A ​guttural ​claim
To ​who ​is ​green
A ​leaf’s ​a ​leaf ​in ​colour ​and ​in ​name

Coarse ​and ​cold
This ​life ​ruled ​now ​by ​tongues

Cutting ​my ​teeth ​on ​the ​words
Sick ​sweet ​copper ​taste
Out ​of ​the ​fold
Must ​have ​wandered ​away

I ​am ​not ​the ​worst ​thing, ​i ​am ​the ​only ​one
I ​am ​all ​to ​each ​man, ​another ​tongue ​to ​lie
Destination ​knowledge, ​sight ​fixed,
​cross ​the ​yet unknown
Without ​a ​word ​no ​memory ​no ​story ​told

Cutting ​my ​teeth ​on ​the ​words
Sick ​sweet ​copper ​taste
Out ​of ​the ​fold
Must ​have ​wandered ​away

Now ​so ​enclosed
Why ​must ​we ​write ​it ​down
To ​see ​is ​to ​know
