Lyrics

1
In a gunpowder night sky
Shot through with holes
She offers up her secrets
Blessings for the taking
Bone shatters, seaward
Ships keel in the mind light
There’s no stopping her

Scattering dust on wires
Down the blood lines

She’s here among us

2.
I saw you in the drowning
Flailing hopelessly
In deep
No one at hand

But she reached out and pulled you clear
Oblivious you leapt back into the darkness

3.
In the unburdened stillness
I could recognize the bliss
The spin of it all
The material touch of mundane miracles
Giddy, lightheaded in the whirl and the rush

I flickered candle-like
Suspended in the night air
Slow fire, dancing
Through her boundless grace
Om namah shivaya

4.
Onwards
Seeing in the blindness
Making the curve
Spiraling Ladder to the lighthouse
Shattered by love
In the never more than now
