Grave Passage Lyrics

4. Grave Passage (8:11)
We walked till dawn
To find the doorway to the stars
(A dream of release
In shaking vows
To leave this world
Of pain unbound)

Across the raging waters
Into the chamber of earth and stone
(A tomb at rest
In cruciform
The corbelled slabs
Above the swells)

A seeker falls, down,
Into the pit ‘neath moss-filled walls
(Our brother gone
We can’t look back
We move as one
Into the black)

One more friend lies in our wake, but
We push forth our escape to the stage above
(A multiverse
The planes unbound
And here we sweat
In its siren sound)

Tunnel through crumbling halls
Where the dead bear quiet witness
Torches lit as we crawl
Secure our desperate egress

But when we emerge
To the shadow that orbits our thoughts
And holds us down with its weight
This idol of stone
That we built to free us from this place
Points up to the void
Knowingly as it laughs in my face

The ancient songs,
Tales of the wyrmhole
Where we could abscond
When they put us against the wall
This parallel universe
That we sought through our menhir’s magic
Left us on the hill
Could and fraught from this grave passage

There is no door
No portal to forgiveness
We’re left on the shore
Forlorn ones to bear witness
