Torchbearer

from by Lovely Dark

/

lyrics

At the waterfall / You felt the river pulling you in / Branching beneath your skin / The source was within you / Cut yourself open / Cut yourself open / Show me / Water falls / Slips between your fingers, your open palms / The truth is finally coming out / The mystery is spelled out in light, and I have seen it, I think that I’ve touched it / I found it in the waves, and all around me / Rising to take me / Rising to take me / Standing before the crowd / With your accusers gathering round / They’re lighting the fire now / Up there on the pyre / Could you see it? / Did you reach out and touch it? / The truth was in the flames, and all around you / Spinning around you, turning in orbit, all the universe inside of you / When the spark begins to catch / Will it burn, will it burn, will it burn / These pages black / When the torchbearer lifts the lantern high / no disguise will survive in the light / Like seeds taking root in the ash / All that was meant to will come to pass / The fire’s beginning to catch
