The Light

The Light


this, the last night

and the end of the world we knew

something brand new pulls at me

something brand new pulls at you

creation, imagination, play and we dream

this station, change the station

wicked it once did seem

the plains, now filled with smoke and mirrors

the silos abandoned, this old trail of tears


we took to the land and it never was ours

we took to the seas, we followed the stars

plundered her body - drilled the holes

but my god, how we love this land


lift the veil, uncover your eyes

let us not rest in our own demise

the wind, it howls, the moon she sees

what’s real and true beyond belief


as the darkness approaches on this last night

we search all the faces to find the light

the light, the light, the light

the light, the light, the light


piece of peace and shoreline start

to cover up homes, towns and all the art

skys grow dark, rains cry forth

help, can you hear the highway north?


Follow the feeling uncover the light

See through the haze that covers the sky

the light, the light, the light

so break out your maps let us find the way home

tighten the mast and sink into bone

remember your calling, remember tonight


the light, the light, the light

the light, the light, the light

the light, the light, the light
