lyrics

Healing…
…heal me.

My wretched mind chooses to forsake me.

For the sake of healing, lace your hands with mine and we will dance…
…sing…
…and create our own memories of major melodies.
Dance…
…sing…
…and create our own memories just in time to hear the call to climb to the top of this spire…
Higher than all, I can see the beauty of the fall.

Hearing…
…hear me, my precious friend…
My precious friend, choose not to forsake me…
Choose not to forsake me for the sake of history, regardless of recent events.
And we will dance…
…sing…
…and create our own memories of major melodies.
Dance…
…sing…
…and create our own memories.

Now listen closely for the call to climb and claw to the top of this spire…
Higher than all, I feel I am now prepared for the fall.

Loosening grip….
Losing time...
Minor melodies are now filling my mind.
Piercing light…
Beckoning calls...
Forced into action, I’m taking it all.

Dreaming of leaning out over the edge...
Conforming to thoughts I’ve composed in my head…

Hands are now free as I look overhead to nothing but clear skies, and I thank god I’m living and falling now.
Impact…
Lights flash…
Unaware…
Unabashed…

Breaking through mind’s wrath…
Descending on a perfect path, I’m falling now and lost to screams.

Simply drawn, a sweet reprise:

Don’t hold me down…
Please allow me to fly toward the ground – it’s where I’m safest to heed the call to climb to the top of this spire.

Higher than all, I will heed the call to climb to the top of this spire.

Higher than all…
