lyrics

TRUSTING TELEPATHY

Having that running deep
heart of the king or queen
what mind is mightily
guiding me subtly

We have been here before
familiar together
as if some sisters be
born into two families

You've known how to get home
and hold your own, when stories go
on along the tangents told
while sauntering down the road

Go forward notice the forest before us
below the trees its floor will hold us
bring back the dying art of lively
it's worth reviving and refining

We spread the fire circle wider
the time has come for the igniter
and seeking solace in what this taught us
flame of the novice gaining knowledge

(I have a feeling this is the end this is the last moment again
the same one it's always been
everyone everything every never
saturated fills me with joy and terror)

We seem to get along
since long ago longing to
walk around all the world
and become little girls

We've got all of our lives
and no time to burn daylight
that kind of patience made
with willingness not to wait

Bring back the dying art of lively
it's worth reviving and refining
the day has come for a departing
away from the norm, a new starting

Brought back to thriving, hope aspires
and now's great timing for catching fire
a baby's crying out empowered
for life's entire chorus choir

We're giving birth with what we're given
transform resources towards importance
the core is reformed from the former
be a creation and destroyer

Ask what I see in you
plenty you see right through
to the bones and the blood
feel the bare minimum

Should we be trusting
telepathy, talk to me
be careful with our eyes
more power than we realize.
