What if every soul was but a spark
Lighting up a second in the (dark)
Yearning to be one only to part?
What if every life was but a day
Flitter like the butterflies in (May)
What if every soul was born to die?
And I’ll raise myself up high
to the pyre
in the sky
and I’ll teach
my soul to fly
and I’ll bring
myself below
to the deepest
that I can go
and I’ll drown
into the night
What if truth
was something
we could seize
Would we die
Knowing we were
Nothing but an empty book of dreams?
Gazing in a billion grains of sand
Tearing down the walls of the Promised (Land)
Opening the heart to veil a lie


from Napoleonic Blues (11 track album), released January 31, 2017
