lyrics

The dreaming hands still grip your ankles
Pulling your weight to the lap of sleep
Once there was a safe resistance
Now there's no valley to leap
Believing is a slip from shackles
Fooling yourself out of rules to keep
Once there was a safe resistance
Now you are awake.

The mouth of your heart is open
It's a furnace to throw your hope in
When you climb tie two knots in your reason
Everywhere magpies thirsty for treason.

There's a screaming in your waking senses
No dulling of your dates under threat of sleep
Once was there was a safe resistance
Now there’s no calendar to keep
Leaving on a ship unbottled
Pouring yourself into an endless sea
Once there was a safe resistance
Now you are awake.

The mouth of your heart is open
It's a furnace to throw your hope in
When you climb tie two knots in your reason
Everywhere magpies thirsty for treason.

I hope my home will open up your hope
My home will open up your hope
My home will open up your hope.
