Entwined

(oehler/goedken)

They say my life is over
When I thought it had just begun
They tell me happiness has ended
I see a lifetime to be won
I’m not going anywhere
I’m not leaving this behind
No one needs another care
Than to be blissfully entwined

And now you feel it

There is nothing we can’t survive

And now you feel it

Like the dreams in which we fly

Speak in the voice of a friend
Hearing angels whisper on
They embrace the story’s coming end
But there is a second race to run

I’m not saying any prayers
I’m not free to be confined
I’ve found no other care
Than to be intertwined

And now you know it

There is no force we can’t survive

And now you know it

Scale these heights as we defy

One more flicker, we go sky high
One more whisper, we go sky high
One more splinter, we go sky high
One more winter, we go sky high
One more fire, we go sky high

Hold me, unearth the whole
Holding pieces that fall apart
I am searching for higher goals
But there’s still blood inside this heart

[EO] I was desperately trying to write a Hybrid song.

The original cut of this was a brutal 7 and a half minutes long, featuring over 3 minutes of self-indulgent synth-wankery intro. Eric Goedken wisely convinced me to trim it back.
