Sound of Awakening

Album: What If Nothing (2017)
  • The sound of awakening
    The virgin yawn of folded wings
    That cracks the crust of the cocoon
    The breaking of first light inside the womb

    Do you feel my heartbeat quickening
    In between the baited breaths before the turning of the page
    The sense that everything's about to change

    Kicking and screaming, you can't make me leave this place
    Cradled in the arms of darkness, I am safe
    Until you pulled me into life, how could I know that I'd been blind?

    It was love at first sight
    When I opened my new eyes
    And saw your face

    The sound of awakening
    The exoskeleton beckoning
    Do you feel the park gates opening
    To the sound of awakening

    As whispers in the heart disclose the rumors of the truth
    When the mind has all but hidden it from view
    The surface trembles as the core begins to heat
    And you are on the crust, the turning earth beneath your feet
    Questioning if time has ever moved in a straight line
    When you hear the aches of past life lovers
    As you pass by one another in the street

    It's the sound of awakening
    A psychotropical symphony
    All the voices washing over me

    The distance
    And the difference
    Between us
    Is just illusion

    The distance
    And the difference
    Between us
    Is just illusion

    It's all a dream
    It's always been a dream
    Yes it's all one magnificent dream
    And that's all it's ever been
    Yes it's all a dream
    It's always been a dream
    Yes it's all a dream
    My love for you
    Will echo in
    Eternity

    The distance
    And the difference
    Between us
    Is just illusion

    The distance
    And the difference
    Between us
    Is just illusion

    The distance
    And the difference
    Between us
    Is just illusion

    The distance
    And the difference
    Between us
    Is just illusion

    The distance
    And the difference
    Between us
    Is just illusion
    (Illusion)

    The distance
    And the difference
    Between us
    Is just illusion Writer/s: ELI MAIMAN, KEVIN RAY, NICHOLAS PETRICCA, SEAN WAUGAMAN
