Lyrics

Waiting for the Lion

Bright is the night
When the lion’s near
All is the light
When the lion’s near
Blue of the oceans and skies
The snowfall, the sunrise
The glowing spring and the trees’ swing
In his eyes there is everything
Tender’s the wind
And the air is clear
When the lion’s near
When the lion’s near
When the lion’s here

I am losing myself
I am losing myself

When the lion’s near
When the lion’s near
When the lion’s here

Shamaim

Nobody else besides Him
No other
No one could be closer, yet farther
The only ray to light
The night and day
The only name that I
Dare not say

Lost
In the clouds above
Lone
In the space and time
My fear and love
My arets, my shamaim

Outside the garden wall
Wild trees root
Bitter is the peel
Sweet is the fruit

The left side
The right side
The bright day
And the dark of night
Hurt me, hold me
Until I find

You are lost
In the clouds above
Lone
In the space and time
My fear and love
My arets, my shamaim

Sleep Sleep

Sleep
A pillow of cold rocks
A tight wooden box
A firm earthen bed
Dead child dead
A mouthful of sand
Tiny white hands
A young poplar root
Grasp my foot

But there, o there above
The swarm of flies drones
The beast once loved
Comes digging the bones
But no scream
The blue tongue curling numb
O, in that sleep
What dreams may come?

A place
Where no sun beams
The scattered dreams
The small broken birds
The songs unheard
A pillow of cold rocks
A tight wooden box
A firm earthen bed
Sleep, sleep, sleepyhead

With the Wind

Let the wind rise
Let the storm begin
Let the coal clouds
Come rushing in
So dark down here
Dark there up high
The whirling pillar
Overcast the sky
Make the trees fly
Make the cars roll Make us feel desperate
And so so small

What’s left of me
Will finally learn to be free

All precious things
That we hold on tight
All stars that glow
In the night
All fluttering dreams
With their tiny wings
Let them go
With the wind

All cues lost
All ties torn
Mighty is the hand of the storm
First things first
Last things last
See I’m getting smaller
With every blast

What’s left of me
Will finally learn to be free

All precious things
That we hold on tight
All stars that glow
In the night
All fluttering dreams
With their tiny wings
Let them go
With the wind

Warmheart

O this warm heart of flesh
A tender muscle
Urges a splash of red
Along the glistening vessel
O this human body
Is softly breathing
Hundred thousand years
I’ve been trapped here

Hey here
Me and my tortured twins dwell
How we ache
To break
Out of this shell

Sometimes I can’t help
Screaming out
Thousand evil words
In my mouth
And the sewers of this
Troubled mind
Wish I could take a look
At what’s outside

There
O there
If I could see through
The paralyzing shimmer of the blue
Sure to be
Something true

Let all the comets of the space
Shine in the dark inside my chest
Forever after
Let all the lunar hurricanes
Sing in the dark inside my head
Forever after

When I die

The morning I die
The clocks won’t stop
The traffic lights
Will wink on in the streets
And the skies
Gonna rain
Drop by drop
As I close my eyes
And stop breathing

When I die
Bury me on the top of the white hill
Because I’d like to see the birds rushing by

The morning I die
The coldest of the year
The northern winds
Will keep howling around
And the trees will swing, the snowflakes sting
But I know I’ll get warm
In the ground

When I die
Bury me on the top of the white hill
Because I’d like to see the birds rushing by
When I die
Bury me on the top of the white hill
Because I’d like to see the birds

Listening to the clapping of the winds there on high
See the doors of the distant galaxies open wide
Hear the calling of the stellar seas overhead
Falling, falling up into the deep
When I’m dead

Hour of the Wolf

Claws
Tight around my neck
Don’t
Let go too soon
I
Will be bone of your bones
Flesh of your flesh
Apple of your eye

Here
And forever after
Here
Where no one can see
We’ll cling
Till the end of time
My shadow to yours
Your shadow to mine

Shadows
We’ll grow
Shadows
We’ll go
Lie down
On the blades of the grass
Look at the furry stars
Down by the roots
Hushed by the howling woods
Scars over scars
O what a mess we are

A flash in his eye
A splash on my wrist
I’m a cloud
I’m a firefly
I am floating above the trees
