Silent Avenue

lyrics

Never taught my body how to fear,
And fought for years what only I could hear.
The things I heard—I don't deserve the things I heard.

Manifest in only child mind
And best escape was climbing out of time—
Blink away another day.

Every blink connects me twice upon
The top of time, my once and future gone.
Touch the glass and come to pass.

There's the child with windows to the night
The mind creates a fear in every sight—
Draw the blinds of every kind.

Lift up your heads, you gates.
Be lifted up, lift up you ancient doors,
That the king of glory may come in glory.

Pull the covers more over my head—
Cool covers keeping me holy.
Lift up your voice to some silent avenue.
Wait for the glow, for the glow.
