Track Name: Between A Grey Sky & The Bitter Sea
we all have
our private terrors
those of us who linger in
the realms of
the living, the partly living
wedged between a grey sky
and the bitter sea
a world of
countless fears
threatening to
unskin our brains
and tear out our hearts

though we are
haunted by nightmares of
our lives and deaths in
a void apart
we go on living, partly living
tossed about in waves of
impenetrable mystery and question

we are but small folk
living, partly living
among small things
between a grey sky
and the bitter sea

in our twilight world
all things become less real
and we drift from unreality to unreality
passing from deception to deception
our rotten vessels heaving
caught in the intractable tide
the unrelenting push and pull

we feebly nourish a wasting hope
while terror shifts eternally beneath us

in our dreams we
hover above a
thousand sword points
while we await
the rise of
a new constellation

but in our waking
we look out to
find we yet
remain wedged between
a grey sky
and the bitter sea
