Are we going away
Are we going today
Can we transcend our lives or are we lost in the wake
We’ve got nothing to give
We’ve got nothing to gain
Living in that moment has left me dragging chains
There was choking smoke
The heavens bent and broke
Transcendence drags its weight in happenstance
If we were given the chance
To see the herons dance
A safety net of chains and transcendence

Running short steps with footprints on the bay. Asking for vengeance to take us away. Asking the birds if they’re going to fly. Begging transcendence rips open the sky. All of her life she had watched for the dance, strutting and spinning just by happenstance
Living transcendence can level us through to something and someone that we’d never knew. Eating the barrels and making them fly. Never knowing they watched for the moment she’d die.

We don’t mean a thing
We never have
We’re nothing


from Blue Heron, track released June 1, 2016
