lyrics

i awaken through the clatter of history
my armor falls around me
aware, my eyes open
i’ve been here before
ashes floating in the air
looking up into the same constellations we saw last time
the same complicated wreckage of our lives
another spin of the universal wheel
i land in another cycle: observer, victim, and perpetrator
repeating my mistakes, again, again, again
i’m a brutal man raging at a boy shivering in the dirt
or holding a young pilot dying on a beach
if only i hadn’t been too late
if only i hadn’t been too late
every so often when i awaken i see your face
in this incarnation we don’t hurt each other
cherish this beauty, too soon it will be ash
then i speak, but discord steps in
i recall this is when i always leave
spin the wheel once more, watch the galaxy turning
the cycle begins upon itself
one cycle closer to understanding
i close my eyes and try to remember
i close my eyes, watch the galaxy turning, and i forget
