Dimmed Through the Smoke Lyrics

1. Dimmed Through the Smoke (6:59)
The weight of loss is bearing down upon me
Time, the river, flows beyond all of its eddies
Unstoppable force, immovable motion, defenseless we are... Succumb
Joy is but a lightning strike, the rest are clouds of grey
Wind carries memories like dust to collect only on the furniture in our minds
Life...and death, I know only sorrow, as those around me are whisked away by the breeze of inevitability
Water and time, drowning in a sea of what's next
Memory flickering, the only truth is to dream what impulses teach us
Raw emotion pours into the melodrama of what our brain creates
But then, awakening, memory fading like ghosts in the fog
Like movement in darkness our eye tries to see but there's only a flicker
Now, stand and try to live. Try to find the joy of a million sovereign moments
One by one like tracks on a train that never stops, a dreamer who always sleeps
The leaf holds to the branch by fibrous strands
Struggling to survive, it too falls victim to wind, it too falls victim to time, it too will wither and die
It too will only find joy in its past
Struggle if you will to survive. Try not to be swayed by the breeze; time will claim its prize
The seconds the minutes the hours the days the weeks and the months and the years
Time is measured in aeons not human life- Insignificance is man and our hopes
Earth is made of rock and stone not flesh and bone, and when life returns to oblivion, rock and stone
will remain and reign. And should the sun explode it will be welcomed by rock and stone not flesh and bone
And recycled through cold space
Joy is but a lightning strike, the rest are clouds of grey
Wind carries memories like ash after the ruins are smoldering
The smell...of smoke fills my nose. Again I can feel the wind at my back
Rain, appears from the grey trying to mix the ash with the dirt
A bird flies by, caught in a daydream
Moving the sky, the sound is obscured by the breeze
A moment in time, a motion that's captured
Gently it fades, an illusion that dims through smoke
