Here, although we cannot tell the fissures in the ground from greater canyons Here, we are at home and make our peace with what's unknown Down, into those chasms that we first explored together as companions Down explores the light until it echoes into night An answer will come and so many patient people wait and stare An answer will come to all of the patient people waiting there Gusts of water, floods of wind caress this world within a world in hiding Gusts are all we feel, unending things are barely real Smile as you wallow in the wonders of the place we've been residing Smile and start to climb, there's never been a better time An answer will come and so many patient people wait and stare An answer will come to all of the patient people waiting there

The shingles on our rooftop kept the sky from seeping in It melted oozing over Home to pool upon the gravel ground Thick and heavy syrup blackstrap blue fuscation dim Descended on the earth but we were sheltered so we didn’t drown I wanted to tell you, I wanted to tell you But I couldn’t wake you, I couldn’t wake you I wanted to tell you, I wanted to tell you The soil beneath our windows may have tried but couldn’t swim It may be screaming screams below the sky but we can’t hear a sound So enveloped by such shrouds do planets cease to spin? You’d not expect a wheel to turn within such viscous thickness bound I wanted to tell you, I wanted to tell you But I couldn’t wake you, I couldn’t wake you But do rotations matter now that ocean’s met its twin? All that we knew from looking up we still know when we’re looking down Let’s raise our eyes to gaze where azure once held clouds within To see what heavens we can see now that the world’s been turned around I wanted to tell you, but I couldn’t wake you
