Lyrics:

How wild the wind came in
On the day when I found out
Passage of the one dead star
Its black dust lingering
Seeping through to my lungs
I fall towards the skyline
I drown my sorrows here
In liquids clear
Time for absolution
How the dead birds sing
They’re right atop my roof

Take my offering
My promise can never be undone
The weight of midnight
Replaced by the shadow of a sun
I hold you in my arms
And it’s farther than you’ve ever been
Little one

Adrift in sacred vertigo
The name is wandering
Our neon epitaph
Time for absolution
All the dead birds sing
They’re right atop my roof

Shadow of my shadow
Cling not to my grief
I’m long left behind now
You are free

Shadow of my shadow
Cling not to my grief
I’m long left behind now
You are free

I hold you in my arms
And it’s farther than you’ve ever been
Little one

Take my offering
My promise can never be undone
The weight of midnight
Replaced by the shadow of a sun
