lyrics

I heard you went under
no one could revive your brazen teeth
the world brings no laughter
you suffer more than you choose to breathe
leave death at your bedside
his visage is not welcome in this dream
stand tall, boy, chin up now
you're only the invention of your thoughts

call a war
on every little fear
that you hide

sunk in and shut out of
your failures and the sunlight you seek
where is it you linger
all summer while all the wild birds roam free
even if you flee now
you're gloom-bound till you swallow the whale
her eyes long and whisper
to summon that old flame that you let die

call to life
all of the weather lines
that you hide

centuries of languid sorrow
all boil down to a moment of truth
and it swells from your chest
what a mess we have made

time moves you in swallows
mind to mind and a heart full with thread
the years will embrace you
no slumber deep enough for your bed
patience is the crown of
all golden men and women on their knees
drawn nearer, our Mother
who beckons, we the soldiers of the Earth

you're no worse
than anybody else
in this life

It’s difficult to describe Teague’s style, but it usually consists of unpredictable melodies that stray, intricate, dynamic arrangements and a soaring, vocal tremolo. ... more
