lyrics

This is the lesser thing
A fading line, a dark dream
And you think you’ll stand up straight

This is the great unwound
This is the lost and the found
A moment’s peace that seems will never stay

“But you press in hard against spaces I never gave…”

And the worst thing you’ll ever know
A sense of freedom in the dying slow
And it will drag you down like a heavy stone and it won’t let go
“So breathe in deeply, my son. I swear I’ve won.”
“This need not be the sum of the one I’ve called My own.”

This is a resounding ring
That calls you home or calls you in
So choose you this day

This is a crashing sound
It comes in loud and you wonder how
The simple things seem to complicate

“But you press in hard against spaces I never gave…”
And the worst thing you’ll ever know
A sense of freedom in the dying slow
And it will drag you down like a heavy stone and it won’t let go
“So breathe in deeply, my son. I swear I’ve won.”
“This need not be the sum of the one I’ve called My own.”

“So will you come alive?”
I can’t start breathing
“So will you come inside?”
Inside I’m freezing

And the worst thing you’ll ever know
A sense of freedom in the dying slow
And it will drag you down like a heavy stone and it won’t let go

And the worst thing you’ll ever know
A sense of freedom in the dying slow
And it will drag you down like a heavy stone and it won’t let go
“So breathe in deeply, my son. I swear I’ve won.”
“This need not be the sum of the one I’ve called My own.”
