lyrics

Through the lies of a fortune teller
In the tomb of a slave through rusted time
Through the blades of a stealth propeller
In the face of a stunted crime
Through the sin, through the cold repentance
Not a word, not a letter he wrote
Came around to the drone of silence
Still alive yet he never missed a note

I was grown in an orchid's shadow
I was primed in a field of make-believe
Semi-stoned in a sea of 'I know'
With a serpent's trail on my sleeve
Sputtered down to an aimless motive
Reaching out through the blindness of her stare
Could it be that she never saw me?
Or was it that I just wasn't there?

Hey
Can you say your goodbyes?
When you pray
With those stones in your eyes?
Will you stay
On the way
To your new home?

Are you free?
Are they holding you down?
I can't see
Through the thorns in your crown
I'm enslaved
I'm unheard
I'm unknown

A silhouette in a dim syncytium
Shutting out all the time-infected rays
On his knees as he hit the ceiling
Camouflaged in his numbered days
Unaware of his plain existence
Hanging down from the end of the rope he'd climbed
Buried deep in a voice unshaken
Echoing till the end of time

And hey
Can you say your goodbyes?
When you pray
With those stones in your eyes?
Will you stay
On the way
To your new home?

Are you free?
Are they holding you down?
I can't see
Through the thorns in your crown
I'm enslaved
Unlettered
I'm unknown

Hey
Can you say your goodbyes?
As you pray
With those stones in your eyes?
Will you stay
On the way
To your new home?

Are you free?
Are they holding you down?
I can't see
Through the thorns in your crown
I'm enslaved
I'm unheard
I'm unknown

Still alive yet he never missed a...
Still alive yet he never missed a...
Still alive yet he never missed a...
Still alive yet he never missed a note
