lyrics

The place where the wind blows through
Where winter enters the room
Here I live

I didn't know my ancestors' lives had been traded
For the vision of our faces
Inside our own hands

This life, it's like living in water
In the cracks in-between the thawing ice
That has begun to live again
Ice yearning to return to water again

There's the wilderness
We live inside
and long for
The place where the wind blows through
Where winter enters the room
Here I live

As a child
standing between two mirrors
I see myself growing infinitely small
and fractal far away

I didn't know my ancestor's lives
Had been traded for the vision of our faces
inside our own hands

It's the place where the wind blows through
where Winter enters the room

When we realize what we've done
to destroy our children's home

It's the wounded crack
where Raven walked out from
Believing his feathers were white
Until he saw himself
Black and shining
In the skin of water
All the infinite way down
