lyrics

my mother was faded to a ghost in disguise
as the sun set under the sky
my father was already gone
he left me entombed in my mothers eyes
follow the feathers of the wisp
that left you nowhere to be found
come to life on the wings of relief
face the tide for what lies underneath
retrace the footsteps of the ones who
took you half dead on the ground
with feathers of a different color
they took me as one of their own
and we sang our songs of success and failures
and compared them just to find out that we're not alone
I'm not a perfect man
I've made mistake but I'm willing to try
to find forgiveness in the eyes
of those I once held close to my heart
follow the feathers of the wisp
that left you nowhere to be found
retrace the footsteps of the ones who
took you half dead on the ground
praise the guardians who carried
you home through the dark
and leave behind what tried
to tear this family apart
with feathers of a different color
they took me as one of their own
and we sang our songs of success and failures
and compared them just to find out that we're not alone
I'm not a perfect man
I've made mistake but I'm willing to try
to find forgiveness in the eyes
of those I once held close to my heart
as she lies, she's talking in her sleep
the ashes are one with the ocean now
the wind carried them as far as they could go
but I will remember you forever
through the years of the sand and the snow
and your colors have faded to grey
and they're harder to see through the smoke
my colors have faded away
as did my memories of you
come to life on the wings of relief
face the tide for what lies underneath
as they rise, let the water recede
close your eyes, and let me wash out to sea
