lyrics

Looking to the shadow in the well
To find out how far I can really walk
I wanted to tell someone but I fell
And now the water makes it hard to talk

Strike a match to light up all these walls
Telling me those words I thought I knew
Like the sun I fell into the jaws
Of that ever unrelentless blue

Am I here oh am I here to lay
Myself into this ocean whence I came
Will the lonely people know my name
Or will it only rest upon my grave

Waking up the mountain from its sleep
Asking it for wisdom of the sky
But the rocky slopes were much too steep
And now I'm left with words I'll never write

Far into the earth I know I've gone
Tell me is it strife inside my head
If the fire clears it won't be long
So tell me is it love that I have bred

Am I here oh am I here to lay
Myself into this ocean whence I came
Will the lonely people know my name
Or will it only rest upon my grave
