Track Name: A Faint Light
A faint light may glow

Beyond the heavy seas

Yet we sail on

Close to the breeze

And when your heart

Leads you astray

You’ll run aground

And slip away

An uncoiling tongue’s

Silvery glide

Has laid you here

To draw the line

To hold the wrath

Of a pounding horde

To guard the dam

For a thousand shores

But soon you wake

With a rift so wide

That you give way

To a boiling tide

Then a heavy haze

A soaring shroud

Inverts the rain

Dries out the brine

A dark cloud may loom

Over the barren land

Yet you trudge on

Through heavy sand

And for your heart

‘s drifted away

You’ll find no ground

To sweep away
