about

Written after a trip to Iceland, in which I was amazed and inspired with the grandness of life and nature while acknowledging my small presence on a tiny island nation on the top of a world floating through a vast solar system.

lyrics

Eye, ear, see, hear the ocean
Let it flow, dear, don't forget the notion
of letting go,
Don't forget the notion of letting go.
I am, searching for something,
I don't know, friend
an answer for the wondering
where does it go?
an answer for the wondering as...

The mountain becomes the clouds
becomes the sky becomes the night
and the ocean washes the day away
As the waves settle down
we wonder why these northern lights
Remind us of our place in this ballet

I hear the language of the hidden
It's unclear, but I appreciate the vision in their songs
I appreciate the vision in their songs
We are a mass of insignificance
thrown far
looking for a place we can belong
looking for a place where...

The mountain becomes the clouds
becomes the sky becomes the night
and the ocean washes the day away
As the waves settle down
we wonder why these northern lights
Remind us of our place in this ballet

Steward, protect the things that matter
Let us not forget just what we found
Steward, beware the cling and clatter
The shores are getting battered by the sound

The mountain becomes the clouds
becomes the sky becomes the night
and the ocean washes the day away
As the waves settle down
we wonder why these northern lights
Remind us of our place in this ballet
