On the Faultline (Closure to an Animal) Lyrics

11. On the Faultline (Closure to an Animal) (5:34)
I am a man!

You fell down from that apple tree,
the other day with me!
And now you ask me to apologise,
for slowly crawling up from the sea?

We never seem to find,
the time to sit by the fire.
Under the crescent moon,
lead a meaningful life.

You ever wonder, Love!
If you could one day board,
a flying contraption and see the world?
Without me?

Leave me behind,
to solve all the puzzles,
you have drawn on these walls over time.

What if I could somehow,
store good memories in clouds?
And fly to touch the moon,
and your hand at the same time?

Here I stand and look at my life.
Barren, cold and incomplete.
A mirror smiles at me with teary disdain,
pointing out the faults in me.

Memories of holidays with you,
will rain on me from time to time.
We have the road within ourselves,
to countless paradises.

When there is a tunnel, there’s a light.
The thought is causing tremors,
on the faultline between you and I.

The clouds always trail the sun,
and floods put out the fires,
To flush away the signs,
of the loves of our lives.

Here I stand and look at my life.
Barren, cold and incomplete.
A mirror smiles at me with a teary disdain,
pointing out all faults in me.

Memories of holidays with you,
will rain on me from time to time.
We are the road, the paradise,
the broken wheel of fortune.

When there is a tunnel, there’s a light.
The thought is causing tremors,
on the faultline between you and I.

When I’m without you,
am I the only human here?

Am I the only human here...

Am I the only human here,
dancing on this faultline?
