lyrics

Sightless are the Wise

in mirrored hall of crystal days with precious thrones of light
my spine is bent another way - I ever seek the night
a magic rain wraps evening dew - no reason to ask why
I see a mirage face of you and touch the skin of sky

ghostly drums summon now the dawn - I ride a moon-wind near
the dream within a dream now sown with wanderers and tears

yet dive you still the undermind of city streets and cries
our broken dreams have made you blind - oh sightless are the wise!

you disappear into a notion
last bold flight o’er purple ocean
I look aloft as you go under
now I live in memory’s wonder
pearlescent eyes shine like a sea gem
bone-burnt waves dare now to hold them

if my death draws your lips to mine - my casket not a tomb
I’ll trade cruel life for sweeter wine – your kiss becomes my womb
oh sightless are the wise my friend and homeless are the rich
legless is the marathon and fortune digs the ditch

fame is just an ashen urn - eternity a joke

should my heart you never spurn - love frees me from this yoke
should my heart you never spurn - love frees me from this yoke
