    "Hope" Lyrics

    I was not put here by anyone in fear
    I came alone as me
    Just an idea in a long chain of discovery
    Surrounded by the same you

    Sometimes your tide pulls me out to sea
    And I die in a thrashing curse
    Sometimes we are kind
    More often, I doze
    So far up the beach that those who try to reach are burnt
    alive in the searing heat of the desert of my dispassion
    So far removed, I never hear the water
    'Cept once or twice a month when I see a mirror

    And I refuse to believe in some of the things that are said to be here
    Let alone those that are not
    I'm trying to change my direction
    Ours is pathetic in my own humble estimation

    I love the planet
    The great benign she-wolf
    Spinning gently on towards the red giant four aeons hence
    When all the rose gardens are consumed in the flash-fire of flying time
    She'll leave alone to you

    When you look at me
    From your own century
    I may seem to be
    Strange archeology
    But when the winds blow
    From this direction
    You may sense me there
    In your reflection
    I think I feel you
    But I will never know
    As the swallows leave
    And the children grow

    I wanted to live forever
    The same is you will too
    I wanted to live forever
    And everybody knew

    When I caught you there
    In tomorrows mirror
    I thought felt you
    Jump out of my skin
    Throwing oil into
    My blazing memories
    Filling empty footsteps
    I was standing in

    I wanted to live forever
    The same as you will too
    I wanted to live forever
    And everybody knew

    As the falling rain
    Of the northern jungle
    Hanging droplets on the leaves
    Bombards my brain
    I hear you
    Across the room
    A sea of daffodils spring into bloom
    You are the mist
    The frost across my window pane
    And again

    She moves her body
    And her whispers weave
    And the world spins
    And tells me that I'll never want to leave

    As I think of you
    From this dark century
    I will always be
    With generosity
    That we both may share
    The hope in hearing
    That we're not just
    Spirits disappearing
