Torchlights

(oehler/goedken/sheridan)
Out where torchlights burn
And the planets turn
We float along this
Touchscreen sea
Where the zeroes sway
Hidden stars at play
Broadcast in
Missives now set free

Here at the perihelion
Where the flames will burn
What price to pay
To secure a safe return?

We stay this course
Light the way for me
So close yet so far
When our paths meet
Along this distance
We’re setting pace
As we forge ahead
Where the storm breaks

As stolen wings will fail
And the ships set sail
We slide inside this
Touchscreen sea
When all the heroes fall
What will sirens call?
Transmit findings
Lost in the debris

Now in our perihelion
Where the flames will play
These silent notes
Eden’s standing in the way

We stay on course
Light the way for me
Set this path on fire
In the end you’ll see
If this line trembles
Brings us to our knees
It wasn’t granted
But for us to seize

Within these closing bounds
Reasons lost and found
By undertow of the
Touchscreen sea
Press out along the edge
Declare and pledge
waves crash down
As we slide beneath

Brought to our perihelion
Where the flames will rise
In flooding light
As we pay the price

We hold this course
Light the way for me
So high and close
But it’s out of reach
As we fall undone
We can burn so bright
We are drawn together
To where flames ignite
