  • I'm the wilderness that eats your bones
    You crossed the mark from your civil zone
    I might be narrow, I might be wide
    We share the same line at the same time

    Alienized that's how I feel
    One foot here and another there
    And in between I'll find a name
    But what I see is all the same

    When you think you are alone
    I'm right by your side
    Well, they call me ecotone
    The cold boundary knife

    I'm the second when the lights go out
    Caught in between there's no way out
    The edge effect that what it is
    But still in the center of the place

    Changing colors right in front of you
    Even though we are one in two
    Sharing the balance of the ecotone
    Makes the alien breathe no more

    When you think you are alone
    I'm right by your side
    Well, they call me ecotone
    The cold boundary knife

    When you think you are alone
    I'm right by your side
    Well, they call me ecotone
    The cold boundary knife

    When you think you are alone
    I'm right by your side
    Well, they call me ecotone
    The cold boundary knife

    Well, you thought you were alone
    But it was right there by your side
    Still they call me the ecotone
