lyrics

Foundations laid
Fight to root the ground
Secure our place
[Against hostile skies]

Daybreak brought my release
Then with the winds of change
Brought me to my feet
[Left my escape behind]

Reached for the skies
Toward the suns embrace
Let the light guide
[As a beacon fire]

Felt the depth
Of my first breath
As I drew in
[For those first steps]

Steps were taken without a sense of trepidation
The blind were leading the blind to uncertainty
Delusions took control

A fragile grasp, believed to grip like a vice
One Lesson, to learn, the beginning of our
realisation

We allowed this to be about pride
Rather than, the search for a sense of direction
This belief that we were on the right path
Our branches already showed the cracks

But we're blind to this
We failed to see
what was stood before us
Continued on
What felt like solid ground
No sense it would give way

We allowed ourselves to wander
aimlessly when darkness fell
we had to trust
Those who lit the way
All sense had broken down before
A trail had been laid at our feet
We had to trust
That we could succeed

We allowed this to be about our pride
Rather than, the search for a sense of direction
This belief that we were on the right path
Our branches already showed the cracks

But we're blind to this
We failed to see
what was stood before us
Continued on
What felt like solid ground
No sense it would give way
