6 simple verses
a psalm in reverse
over someone's old vignette of loss

over the tone of assaults
over centuries of thought

We relive here, where the sound disappears

pleated and covered
by so many others
these moments compressed in the sprawl

over and over begins
our illusions and lies

We proceeded, where the whispers appear

inside there was more
so much more
souls alight collide
on fire
on fire

in love there was more
so much more
hold my all against
your fire

in time so restlessly
we're here

so much more
we were here

12 simple verses
a fall in reverse
signals all the above and the rest

over the songs that are not
over tensions of thought

We relive here, where the sound disappears

believing the source
of the one's we out grow
reason endlessly wrestles in awe

over and over begins
our illusions of and lies

We become here, where the whispers appear
