lyrics

There she walks now
Dark bird flies now
Black winds blow now
see.

Clothes hang wet down
Rain cracks sky down
Waves grasp, draw down
be.

Feel the wind whip
hear the spray sigh
feel the sand grit
dance the sea by
While the heads ring
thund'ring
lose the key.

Whisper soft the bird is bound now
Close hid quiet wings tied deep down
Tucked inside the beats sound dimly
faintly weakly blent with sea.

Hark
cry
beat
sigh

Hark
cry
tear
fly
folded dark inside.

Pecked out from within by a thousand wings of hurt
eyes red and swollen
can't see the way
each swell just another shadow cloaked in night
the ripples are so slick, battle rages round
walk on still.

Hand at your back
Message in the wind
Telling her the tale
Loosening the locks.

Celebrate the storm
Stand tall hold tight
Hope wait the bird soars
Walk free into light

there's a glory sent
winging down the moon trail
there's a glory sent
winging down the moon trail
rise and see.
