lyrics

Wings will fly us from histories,
We'll look down on them like tops of trees
They'll become small as we become free
As we become free.

Cast your fears to the rising tide
Beak to chest, not a blood-soaked knife.

We'll we our waking hours to our dreams
We'll walk our wisdom without a leash
Walls are weak when a bad wolf breathes
When a bad wolf breathes.

Fast your tears and surprise your eyes
Beat your chest on the soul's dark night.

And I'll be your pelican.

Bring the lies, I'll unpack the truth
I'll pull the ugly words out from the root
They'll disappear as we come to bloom
As we come to bloom.

Cast your fears to the rising tide
Beak to chest, not a blood-soaked knife
Fast your tears and surprise your eyes
Beat your chest on the soul's dark night.

And I'll be your pelican.
