The Horror and the Wild

lyrics

You were raised by wolves and voices,
Every night I hear them howling deep beneath your bed
They said it all comes down to you

You’re the daughter of sightless watching stones
You watch the stars hurl all their fundaments
In wonderment, at you and yours, forever asking more

You are that space that’s in between every page, every chord and every screen,
You are the driftwood and the rift, you’re the words I promise I don’t mean
We’re drunk but drinking, sunk but sinking
They thought us blind, we were just blinking
All the stones and kings of old will hear us screaming at the cold

Remember me I ask. Remember me I sing
Give me back my heart you wingless thing

Think of all the horrors that I
Promised you I’d bring
I promise you, they’ll sing of every
Time you passed your fingers through my hair and called me child
Witness me old man, I am The Wild

You are the son of every dressing up box,
And I am Time itself, I slow to let you play
I steal the hours and turn the night into day

Day by day oh lord three things I pray
That I might understand as best I can,
How bold I was, could be - will be - still am, by god still am

Fret not dear heart, let not them hear
The mutterings of all your fears, the fluttering of all your wings
Welcome to the storm, I am thunder,
Welcome to my table bring your hunger

Think of all the horrors that I
Promised you I’d bring
I promise you, they’ll sing of every
Time you passed your fingers through my hair and called me child
Witness me old man, I am The Wild

Remember me, Remember me, Remember me, Remember me
Remember me I ask. Remember me I sing

Think of all the horrors that I
Promised you I’d bring
I promise you, they’ll sing of every
Time you passed your fingers through my hair and called me child
Witness me old man, I am the
Think of all the horrors that I
Promised you I’d bring
I promise you, they’ll sing of every
Time you passed your fingers through my hair and called me child
Witness me old man, I am the
