lyrics

And what if the STORM ends? What if the lightning fades away, fizzles out over the bay, what if the STORM ends? What if the rain don't come? What if the grapes I grew for wine dry and wither on the vine, what if the rain don't come? What if I'm not built for cloudless days? What if you were never meant to see my face? What if the sunlight cuts me down scatters my shattered skin around and plants me in that dirty cracking ground? Hollow, broken me--in love with my entropy. And I've been taking shelter. I feel I've taken shelter all of my life, but that's a lie. And the STORM it rages on. My mind's a broken record that the needle's on. The sunlight calls to me says son you're unworthy of the dawn and the STORM it rages on. Hollow broken me--in love with my entropy. Oh no, what if I'm not me? What if I'm not me happy? The sun came flicking through the clouds to set my soul aflame and at once I fell in love with all the crevices of day. Well I crashed into that open air and I felt myself open. I'm blooming with the cherry trees, I'm swelling with the oceans. I'm loving myself at ease--buzzing right along with the honey bees. And if the STORM finds it's way back into my mind I know the Sun's still there behind. I'm looking at the sky these days, I'm always looking up. Intoxicating colors fill that blue inverted cup and all we see is infinite and it's infinitely gleaming. I'm drunk on all the spirits, can't you feel them teaming? I'm loving myself at ease--buzzing right along with the honey bees. And if the STORM finds it's way back into my mind I know the Sun's still there behind and I don't want to GIVE this up. I don't want to GIVE this up now. I'm loving myself at ease--buzzing right along with the honey bees. And if the STORM finds it's way back into my mind I know the Sun's still there behind. Oh, I know the sun's still there behind.

Always forward, that is the mantra.
