lyrics

The ache in our throats, know it ain't all our own:
The homes thrones and combs we've all thrown out like bones
Were you afraid to watch me go?

The wordlessness shows and I'll still utter none
Translations and truths come in screaming, undone
Gold-eaters, sky-dancers, walkers of the sun

Love is the law here I cannot unlearn
Forget to remember, escape to return
Do your time, you weary waterbird
Build your shrine, when you find the words
Coza fai, dove si trova?
