The Great Unraveling

This song is by Fish and appears on the album A Feast of Consequences (2013).

He met her, she had me
Spiralling ribbons, cut the cord away
The twists of life, the knots of dreams
This was before the great unraveling

In time, no strings attached, so wild and free
No ties to bind, a world before us
We threaded hopes within the tapestries we wove
So far away, the great unraveling

The great unraveling
She tied my laces, sewed the buttons, spun the rhymes
The great unraveling
He taught the ropes, he spared the rod, he drew the lines
The great unraveling
She slowed the blood, my beating heart, the streaming tears
The great unraveling

The strands of time, the rules and chains that bind us
That holds us down till we forget just how to fly
Bound by fears, of change from old traditions
Began to sense the great unraveling

The great unraveling
She tied my laces, sewed the buttons, spun the rhymes
The great unraveling
He taught the ropes, he spared the rod, he drew the lines
The great unraveling
She slowed the blood, my beating heart, the streaming tears
The great unraveling

The lives that we played before
Stretch into our past define us
Instinctively hearts entwine
Love brings us closer to carry us forward
The seeds that we sow today
The loose ends we tie and nurture
The threads that we spin and weave
To uncertain futures, we usher them into the light
Into the light, into the light
Into the light, into the light

Imprint the knowledge, pass the message on
I know I have to let you go
One day I have to say goodbye
I know that I will have to leave and give up to the light
Into the light
