lyrics

I close my eyes and the sun goes out
Hold a breath and all of the creatures fall dead
Cover my ears and the universe goes silent

Not a water drop
Not a heartbeat
Not a sound from a songbird in any of the 4 corners

I swallow the stars until they burn like coals through my eyes
My outline glows against the night sky like an eclipse of the sun
And sparks follow each of my movements like a shower of meteors

I light up the sky with the Aurora
Comets appear before dawn

He greets us at death in that quiet place that is faint in our memories
That place that has always been there but we can't quite remember

When you cross that bridge to the other world, open the door and step through
Step through the stars, swim through the gate,
Touch the very boundaries of the universe
