Kayo Dot Marathon Lyrics

Choirs of the Eye Track Listing
CD 1
  • 1 Marathon
  • 2 A Pitcher of Summer
  • 3 The Manifold Curiosity
  • 4 Wayfarer
  • 5 The Antique
  • And so ten centuries solemnly collide
    Love failed and I have
    Lost my Name

    Secrecy hoards the treasure
    Coveted most by me
    As rainwater collects in barrels
    Sleep covers Abuse with Time
    Too many dream-haunted hours
    Leaves me with seasons swelling and growing
    And without welcome, fading
    Something makes sense in ripples
    Grief is the corpse from which worms feed
    Alas, I am not this stricken man
    Suspended by sunlight, shadows break
    Their silent vigil
    As rainwater collects in barrels
    Lucifer rose up to kiss the analgesic dawn
    While below, Something roll'd the stone away
    Something makes sense in ripples
    Gradually, I saw Abuse is a Name
    And ghosts will seem forever
