Beneath the highest of tides Ghostly figures stir And awaken the void A call to roam the seven seas Towards the shore The lore of the deep A spell is cast Emerge from waves White horse Celestial force Hooves tread in the southern light Through winter cold, ablaze And torching the way Equestrian excellence An abundant and fruitful life Ancient heartbeats Rooted in earth Ride on
2.
Remember when in the womb Draped in secrets of final dawn I will go to your tomb At last light I will raise a stone Bury time so old And the stars came to me What was revealed within? Come drifter, wanderer In your bosom lay my dreams

In your flowing hair Every forest entangled Echoing through time Every mountain holds your voice
4.
Deep into the sea of night I heard you sing Your presence eluding me yet I still dream To drink of your wines, to run the rivers dry I have found myself begging for more With arms like wands you rise from the cold earth With arms like wands you gather all the moons With arms like wands, stranded in your mystery With arms like wands, the folly of a thousand lifetimes I follow you Surging waves of grief Frozen winter’s will Stretched out on the floor When and where… did you go? Return to me

13:03
You say goodbye and wonder why Did you want me to go? Will I ever know? Walking away with heavy eyes Down the path I chose tonight Felt the chill in my bones As I watched them drown In the lake of your eyes Lamenting still But the night is young And the world’s asleep Why did we take to the streets With heavy, hollow hearts? (You) Pull me in (The world’s asleep) I’m a lost child swimming in my dreams And you’re the fleeting memory Come over in spring I can’t believe it’s been So long So long Slumber forged in weeping millennia If you leave If you leave Return to the void The distant constellation Goodbye Oh sweet darkness Solitary maiden The oceans you must cross Farewell Nocturnal flower In the silence My soul nests and pecks at your love
