lyrics

You see a porthole in the floor near where you’re standing made from wood. As you begin to open it you feel a cool rush of air coming up through it and smell the scent of beautiful flowers. Once fully open the hatch reveals a long ladder coming down in to a cloud. As you descend the ladder through the cloud the wind rushes around you and you realize you’re high above the mountains. You Look Around at a beautiful landscape in awe for the rest of your climb which finishes atop a lush plateau. By the time you reach the bottom it is dusk and the wind is pushing the tree branches and bushes around wildly. The breeze you feel is warm. You spy a round table with ornate chairs around it in a clearing and begin to head toward it. You see opaque figures sitting and mingling. From a distance you witness them gesturing and conversing. You wait a moment and then gain the courage to interact with them. “Hello, may I sit with you?” “Nay.” They say in harmony. One says, “He hasn’t the hat to sit with us does he?” “Nay.” Say the rest of them. A small boy wearing tattered cloths looks to you and says “not the right shirt neither, better be going now” As you stare at them they shimmer and go in and out of your vision. As they speak it begins to become unintelligible. Their voices become deeper and higher and out of pitch. As you back away a single step all falls silent and they speak in unison. “Never is, never was.” And then they sit again and the wind and chatter resume. You turn and begin to run, feeling your heart race and your feet pound against the ground. Behind you they are cheering and laughing. “What is this feeling?” You ponder as you run through the forest. The light is leaving the world as you come to great cliffs at the edge of the mountain. For a moment you’re driven to fling yourself from this world. You hold it in. And when you’re ready to let go again you’re afraid. Something inside of you stings you and brings for the first time a great sadness in your heart. Your feet tell your hands to drag your body and so they do. Through the dirt you crawl parallel to the cliff. And the light is almost gone. You’re too tired now to keep crawling so you lay on one side facing the cliff staring in to the great wooded expanse. Suddenly a massive winged creature soars through the sky miles out above the trees. Body of a bird, head of an elephant. As it soars through the sky you see silver clouds forming around it until it finally soars over you, covering the sky in silver. All is dark now and so your eyes close. “Can I go away? If I close my eyes will the world vanish?” “We do not know.” Says the voice in your head. “but to be sure, we’ve made a world for every state”. Now you feel a sort of paralysis and your eyes will not open no matter how you try. You make the decision not to panic and accept that your eyes may remain closed as long as intended. “Please one day, may my eyes open again.” You begin to have visions. A blizzard falling over a forest in fast motion. Rain drops splashing in slow motion in a pond. A Fire spreading across a mountainside. Disassembled trees spread out across a white gridded floor assembling rapidly. Two colored spheres becoming one. Forming a new color. A single horizontal line. You hear a low hum crescendo to a violent dissonance and the line becomes erratic. “Please one day, may my eyes open again.”
