Star of light, see what you gave
You cheated away the cold dark night
Edge of a blade, let’s meet at the grave
Of the wax figurines
Ice melts, upsets the sea, submit, follow me
Walk with me now in the sunlight
Daylight, down with the night
Invincible light, are you back with us now?
Source of all reason, I’ve come alive
“Finally,” I cried. And it’s me, I have arrived
Now, is this the seed rooting in me?
Is it the tree that I wanted to climb?
Down or high, my senses strive on
For all I can see
Tell me how the planet was formed
In a gas cloud, out of dust we were born
Are you dusty, my figurehead friends?
What’s it feel like to come to the end?
So tell me, have you any regrets?
From your glass house can you see what you’ve set
Are you listening to the things that they’ve said
In your diary — the book of the dead
See the helix alive, we cast you aside and thrive
So come now and we’ll settle the bet
It’s a dark hour that you’ll never forget
Is it lonely as you take in the next to last breath
And die


I bring to you the words you threw
into my face once before
I’m only here to spread some fear
I need you to know you will die
And not very nicely — surprise!
I know what you need
I promise you, when we get through
You might not believe but I tried
Your head will scream: divide with me
Emerge like a new butterfly
Purge all the worms left inside
(birds want a good time)
So don’t evade the surgeon’s blade
Cos the answer could be in your mind
Maybe one cut and we’ll find
We’re just a wavelength behind
But we are entwined
And I know what you need


When is a fox not a fox?
When it hides in the rocks and prepares to reveal itself
Dropping the guise to expose
That it knows what you don’t want to show
Why are we swerving to stop at the top of the clock
Like we really could save ourselves
What if I said that the world doesn’t end in the end
But continues to mend itself
How can you count the amount
Of a mountain that sprouts
If you’re not there when it comes out
