lyrics

Ancient loss has left it dancing, in the fire
Careful cost has filled the ether, with desire

So kept close
In the burl
And the hush
It speaks jest
To a friend
While the brush
Dancing lithe
In its clutch
Can't pretend
That it wants
To grow old
In the shade
Of the painter's
Palm

But it does anyways
But it does anyways

So left light
From the crop
And the vale
It made time
Wallow still
While the quail
Wanders on
To avail
Of the thrill
Of the sky
Just to fall
Unlike Icarus
Too close
To the sea

And it’s under the waves
And It’s under the waves

Ancient loss has left it dancing, in the fire
Careful cost has filled the ether, with desire

So made marred
By the fault
Of a seer
It was quick
To the track
While the deer
Blew away
Like a fear
Looking back
To escape
From itself
As it never had done
So it grew
To the sun

And it's up in the haze
And it's up in the haze

So felt fast
As the sea
Drew ashore
It was gone
When I woke
While the lore
Of the land
I had bore
Was afloat
And you left
On that ship
Though you never were here
Just the quail
And the deer

I just hope that they stay
I just hope that they stay

Ancient loss has left it dancing, in the fire
Careful cost has filled the ether, with desire
Ancient loss has left it dancing, in the fire
Careful cost has filled the ether, with desire
