about

This lyric was inspired by a photograph taken by Jim Shirey, titled 'A Heaven of Leaves' - see accompanying image.

lyrics

comb the night
with an eye
you stole from me

scrape the light
from a river bed
that bleeds

starlight claws
a caress down a wounded tree
dressed in a flesh
so soft and shivering

i stand inside your world
and learn to see

it's a golden night
that has forsaken
me
