From The Deep

The path that wound from the centre
Route of a lifeless trade
Soaring through to the clouds
A scent of freedom in pursuit
The call of the inner tide
Reaching out to the stones

A ravaged temple in mourning
The scene of a long-lost crime
Finger-prints are withheld
Souls of past lives surrounding
Scouring the sun-burnt sand
Moulding brain upon brain

And they say, “Come up!
From the deep
Come up! Heave on up!
To our dreamworld
From the deep”

Gods who have no religion
A child without a name
All so close to our ground
Their calls insistent but distant
Moving through doors of time
Makes it hard to resist

Push my eyes where they don’t see
Pull me where I’ve not been
Turn me inside out
We’ll try to touch them, to be them
To be in another world
We’ll travel up from the deep

And they say, “Come up!
From the deep
Come up! Heave on up!
To our dream city
From the deep”

I find it hard to stay down here
Don’t know where I belong
Can you see through my head?
Can you see through my head?
Can you see through my head?
Can you see through my head?
Can you see through my head?
Can you see through my head?
Can you see through my head?
Can you see through my head?
Can you see through my head?
Can you see through my head?
Can you see through my head?
Can you see through my head?
Can you see through my head?
Can you see through my head?
Can you see through my head?
Can you see through my head?
Can you see through my head?
Can you see through my head?
Can you see through my head?
Can you see through my head?
