Depths II

This song is by Silent Planet and appears on the album The Night God Slept (2014).

All the world was a dream I couldn't shake
In a midnight reverie of which I'll never wake
That started mundane enough with an incessant tapping
On the windowpane separating me from the storm

Where inside I sat, me the loathsome fool
With my head cocked sideways in confusion
As my looking glass³ became a two-way mirror
And you can watch me hide from everything on this living sphere
But don't you dare darken my doorstep
Stranger; never a step more, no, no, nevermore
You see, I have this reoccurring dream
Where we snuck past scores of slumbering guards
And fixed that rustic iron key to that lock to set you free
"I would bring you liberty!"
Where in reality I'm a coward
I'm collateral matter swayed by banalities of time and space
I'm a name without a face

My trepidation reached threshold and my terror turned to madness
When I awoke I was swinging at shrouded silhouettes
And stumbled out the door where my anger
Was extinguished by this downpour
Compelled, void of volition, my steps propelled through this chronic storm
Where there in the clearing; throughout the gaps in the trees
Dark smoke flickered from fire illuminating my unease
Like clockwork, seven sisters turned together in a circle
Autonomy abandoned, they moved singular and perpetual
Around a dark blue flame where I heard you call my name
"I am the fire that is never quenched
And I am the river that will not run dry"

When I slept in that garden
Lord did you see me as I was dreaming?

This is the end of everything
We'll lose our divisions and forget our names
The precipice of eternity
I caught fire, I caught fire, I caught fire and you'll watch me burn
