primal breath lyrics – at the gates

look the herons in the greenbilled water
their wet-ash wings wear medallions of patience
we drift on…
[go?]
we have stories as old as the great seas
breaking through the chest
flying out the mouth
noisy tongues that once were silenced
all the oceans we contain, coming to light [, coming to light]

all the dark birds rush from the river
leaving only the stillness of their language
there are no clocks to measure time,
but the beating of our singing hearts [, sing hard]
[go?
we have stories as old as the great seas
breaking through the chest
flying out the mouth
noisy tongues that once were silenced]
you will know it is winter
by the way you dreams tremble like stones
when the wind comes through
the wind, full of hearts that beat quick and strong

[noisy tongues that once were silenced
all the oceans we contain, coming to light

primal breath
