about

Work your progress! Hold to! Now! Win out, ye divil ye! The silent cock shall crow at last. The west shall shake the east awake. Walk while ye have the night for morn, lightbreakfastbringer, morroweth whereon every past shall full fost sleep. Amain.

-James Joyce; Finnegan's Wake

lyrics

I walk away walk away walk away from this
Through the doubt behind my eyes
and the pulse of fear within
My stride is straight my stride is true
It’s taking me away from you

Deceived like an eclipse
the sun has blinded all
Scattered like shrapnel in chaos
splintered in walls
Afraid that what we know is right
and changing is the fuel
Dumped into the fire of fear—unknowing

I walk away walk away walk away from this
Broke through the cane and left a trail
of feelings I discard
Crucified and drawn again
gravel scorched and dusted
Left alone to ponder love
and people that you’ve trusted

Innocent of all but knowing
captured within the search was over
Held tight till your nails broke in the fall
The sky was aflame
your hope was razed to the ground
I held the match and I waited too long

I walk away walk away walk away from this
The blood that once united us
is red with impurity
Standing in silence
I pray for deliverance
Resolve like an ocean
washing away footprints

Interpretations—victim of yours
Regrets—I have none
Complications—victim of yours
Regrets—I have none

I walk away I walk away and face into the sun
I walk away I walk away
and then I run
