My flame burned low
Though the engine kept on
The slow-burn peril
Worn down, but still ploughed on
And my thoughts, shooting sparks
Flash, brief
A constellation in the yawning black
Losing hours became losing years
While I drowned in the vacuum here

These new desires, they are poisoning us
Through every fibre
Breeding a carelessness with our integrity
A brazen disregard for our vulnerabilities

The sky it boils along the horizon
They would deceive you, son
I was born on the mountain,
I was born in the wilderness
Finding refuge in the arms of the forest
Come to exile at an altar of green
Flint and tinder to relight the fire to endure
Beyond the ones we have been


from Anthropocene, released November 30, 2018
