Track Name: Softening of the Light
I'm dreaming in black and white
alone with the satellite
I cling to the tail of life
lagging so far behind...

At the top of the hill there's a cross
abandoned and covered in frost
I wonder how much it will cost
to look the other way...

It feels like a carousel
a coin in a wishing well
The stories that fail to write
the softening of the light...

So where am I to go
at the end of the wonder show?
The ones who rode with me
the woven tapestry...

The moonlight on the field
The stars that never heal
The ticking of the clock
I reel from constant shock...

It feels like a carousel
a coin in a wishing well
The stories that fail to write
the softening of the light...
It feels like a fantasy
soaring above the trees
The fading world will ride
the softening of the light...
