ENDINGS & BEGINNINGS (2012)

LYRICS


Endings and Beginnings

Poets priests and philosophers

Prayers posers ponderers

Wondering about when our time runs out

 

White light, dark night, endless abyss

Angel choir, hell fire, virgin’s kiss

Be real good right now cause you get another go around

 

Endings beginnings
To ashes in the wind
From pure and innocent
Endings beginnings
They make us whole
But the beauty unfolds
In between the endings and beginnings

 

Heaven’s way, seven days, let there be’s 

Talking snake, tree of life, Adam, Eve

A bite from forbidden fruit and sin is born brand new 


 

A spark in the dark would you believe 
That every supernova and galaxy 
The universe and you was once no bigger than a pink grapefruit 


 

Endings beginnings 
To ashes in the wind 
From pure and innocent 
Endings beginnings 
They make us whole 
But the beauty unfolds 
In between


 

How to make sense of the middle 
The mystery wrapped up in a riddle 
Or is it oh so simple 
Give a lot and take a little 
To the grave from the cradle 
To the grave from the cradle 
To the grave from the cradle… 


 

Endings beginnings 
To ashes in the wind 
From pure and innocent 
Endings beginnings 
They make us whole 
But the beauty unfolds 
In between, In between the endings and beginnings




Burn My Body

Burn my body
Scatter my ashes

 

The shape to what you leave behind

The space that fills a loved one’s mind
Everybody leaves a different kind of mark

A beautiful scar on a beating heart

 

Burn my body
Scatter my ashes

On a deep blue sea

On some high mountain passes
Lose me to the wind

Lose me to the water

Remember me as true

Remember me as true to you

 

A wise man said before he left

I’ve lived well I have no regrets

Let my ripples roll on and on and on and on

That’s what love should do when we’re long gone

 

Burn my body
Scatter my ashes

On a deep blue sea

On some high mountain passes
Lose me to the wind

Lose me to the water

Remember me as true

Remember me as true to you

 

What you gonna take when you go
Let me spend my love on all that I know

My dreams lay right before my own eyes
Keep me wideawake long before it’s my time then

 

Burn my body
Scatter my ashes

On a deep blue sea

On some high mountain passes
Lose me to the wind

Lose me to the water

Remember me as true

Remember me as true to you




Doubt

Common threads can come unraveled
Even with the miles we’ve travelled

Edges fraying colors fading

Losing track of what we’re making

 

Wondering ’bout the truth to all the stories we have heard
Wondering is this everything and all that we deserve

 

No one wins when it creeps in
Winds its way finds it way into a heart
Into a mind a creeping vine 
A spinning top where does it stop
Where does it start

Doubt doubt

 

When can’t get better comes up winners

We can’t forget we’re all still sinners
Little scandals constant battles
Dripping wax from melting candles

 

Facing what can turn the honest heart into a liar

Facing what can fuel the tiny spark into a fire

 

No one wins when it creeps in
Winds its way finds it way into a heart
Into a mind a creeping vine 
A spinning top where does it stop
Where does it start

Doubt doubt

 

Can we see it for what it is
Can I see it for what it is

 

No one wins when it creeps in
Winds its way finds it way into a heart
Into a mind a creeping vine 
A spinning top where does it stop
Where does it start

Doubt doubt




Mountains and Me

Everywhere I’d go

Was one there in the road

 

I’d try to find some way around

But there was never level ground

 

Rising out of nowhere

Far as I can see

Sometimes I feel 
The whole world is
Mountains and me

 

I’ve been all alone

Been piling up the stones

 

I build ‘em out of fear

Wishin’ that they’d disappear

 

Rising out of nowhere

Far as I can see

Sometimes I feel 
The whole world is
Mountains and me

 

I’ve leaped off and lived I’ve seen them vanish in thin air
Struggled up and over what was never really there

 

I have cursed and suffered stumbled up so many times

All I had to do was learn to make the mountains mine

 

Everywhere I go
There’s one there in the road

But that’s all right you see
‘Cause mountains set me free
Mountains and me
Mountains and me




The Promise

I know I know you love me

But there are moments you don’t like me one bit
You know, you know I love you
But sometimes I feel the same I admit

 

It’s better off as something we don’t try to hide
Doesn’t mean we’re living in a strange little lie

Staring it down helps to keep it alive

 

It’ll make you wonder
It’ll make you sure

It’ll tempt you it’ll turn you
Ask you what it’s worth

It’ll keep you dreaming
It’ll keep you still

It’ll humble it’ll hallow you

The promise will 
The promise will

 

With time with time and a lot of truth

We’ve laid our foundation down
So we work, we work each and every day
And fight for every inch of common ground

 

Silence holds nothing but a wicked little plan
Slips onto the scene an endless empty land
Makes you question where it even is you stand 


 

It’ll make you wonder
It’ll make you sure

It’ll tempt you it’ll turn you
Ask you what it’s worth

It’ll keep you dreaming
It’ll keep you still

It’ll humble it’ll hallow you

The promise will 
The promise will

 

I carry a memory in my mind

Keep it where I still feel the pain
The shame of crossing a line 
I won’t walk that way again
No the promise is the road I take 


 

It’ll make you wonder
It’ll make you sure

It’ll tempt you it’ll turn you
Ask you what it’s worth

It’ll keep you dreaming
It’ll keep you still

It’ll humble it’ll hallow you

The promise will 
The promise will
