lyrics

Distance just a warning to the sun
That I won’t go, not another one

Damages are foreign to the cell
Well of course they are, because you built it well
You built it well, you built it well

That cloak I wore to tempt it in the night
Through cracks I slipped, and the darkness fights

I won’t keep the chamber is good form
Well of course I won’t, with the spirit borne
Oh adorned, oh adorned

Ghosts oh don’t they strike a fight beyond these walls
Forest tender, defender falls
A shame it is to keep the felon locked from his
Image healing without’s within

Long as I’ve been covered in the fold
That life I led, lying bound untold

Stories just a figment of the mind
The healer’s hand, with the shackles bind
Oh they bind, oh they bind

Ghosts oh don’t they strike a fight beyond these walls
The forest tender, defender falls
A shame it is to keep the felon locked from his
Image healing without’s within

My dear oh we climb, for the outside we pined
And the tiredness creaks like the shackles tied

Like a church oh it rings, when you call out and sing
Is it strange that we sin for what side we’re on?

On the catwalk we lay, held the darkness at bay
And the concrete kept tabs on the morning light

And that night we felt safe, because the spirits did wake
To protect us from what they tried to escape
