lyrics

Following our sun along a beaten path…
…safe and predictable, she laughs.

We have made all our regular choices, yet this pathway seems so unfamiliar.
Where are you leading us with your laughter and lies?

Hold open the doorway and I will run into the forest and fields we once held as our own.
Let us revisit the grove where our lives began.

Follow this river…
…run along the banks and feel so unpredictable.

We have made all our regular choices, yet this river feels so unfamiliar.
Where are you leading us with your twists and your turns?

Hold open the doorway and I will run into the forest and fields we once held as our own.
Let us revisit the grove where our lives began.

It begins with a glimpse of the sun as she chases the stars away.
Now in celestial reign, she will not back down.

But where have you gone?
What have we lost?
Will you abandon us?

Hold open the doorway and I will run into the forest and fields we once held as our own.
Let us revisit the grove where our lives began.

She burns the doorway down.
Raging with laughter, descending upon the grove, she calls the river to watch as she burns our homes into the ground.
The ashes spread 'round - river is flushing us out.
She's burning...
…we're burning up.
