Silent Planet – Depths III Lyrics

[Verse 1: Garrett Russell]
I knew one truth, and that truth was the sea
Cold and knowing, it saw the coward in me
And as the stain of epochs lines my tongue
I choked heavy on the past, too numb to speak back
We're each abandoned by the hands of time
That set us down to sail circles [1] across a straight line
Sister moon, are we all that's left?
Just a silent satellite and the sigh of flesh [2]
Come down and rest your lunar head on my breast
Listen to the terror tear in my chest
Our masts in tatters, oars shattered
Feel free to pull me back to the vast, unforgiving mass
Should we call this art - my falling apart?
The tangents of an imbalanced heart
As matter, multiplied I divide, but I digress
The deprivation is taking effect

[Verse 2: Garrett Russell]
You said if I stood against my darkness
Not all of me would die [3]
But all I see on the surface is a shadow
And it occurs to me this could mean suicide
When you went quiet [4], I turned to silence [5]
Seven sisters [6] draw me back across the moor [7]
Could you still love me in my leaving?
Would you remember me by the moments we forgot?
And as the waves slapped at my raft
I curse the fate like our vows, they broke at the bow
Flanked by the mist I inhaled the breath of existence
That you call me for one last time

[Chorus: Garrett Russell]
I am the wind, the be and the still
I am the Depths, the Immeasurable Will
And when I awoke in that garden
Lord, did you see me as I was dreaming?

[Verse 3: Garrett Russell]
I locked eyes with the storm
The sky sank down to receive the fury of the sea
The abolition of my being [8]
The precipice of eternity [9]
Incandescence burst through the black
The veil was torn [10] as the void collapsed
The rain will subside
Be my eyes, [11] show me hope in the maw of the night
Our fractured pasts fall into one
A dozen stars [12] collide as a perpetual sun [13]
And as we disintegrate
Will you be the fire that burns in my lungs?

[Outro: Garrett Russell]
Breathe me in
Watch me burn
Come breathe me in, breathe me in
You'll watch me burn
