wilderness lyrics – bat for lashes

i took my lanes to the sea
we had just pressed the sh*lls into our bones
and we saw the queen in the sky
gently revealing the treasures of her crowns
took off all of our armour
every last single drop of gold
and we banished the land
lifted our bodies right up into the cold

wilderness
in the darkest night
i call out to my brothers
come join me in flight

and the tears they did roll
from the salty sea, the rainy sky
and the wide eye, the wide eyes
my heart it did swell
as the grandest of stars burst out names in the skies
i can see but a thousand
of families and friends i have thought but long gone
and the thunder claps hands as i embrace them
and we held on to every single last word

wilderness
in the darkest night
i call out to my brothers
come join me in flight
