Track Name: Centuries of Winter
opened my eyes
stopped lying with my eyes
truth and pain flew through me
centuries of surviving with our eyes
come with me my little child
we have so far to go
the storm is circling around its course again
come with me my little child
we have so much to see, to feel
the trauma lines stretch farther than you know
sow
grow
your seeds they came from plants before you
and before them too
they sometimes never got to see the sun
and here you are, in front of love,
they're asking for the truth
the only thing it seems that you can't do
the past spilling has got to stop somehow
{ } cannot escape ancestry
let me fall into the higher frequencies
and so we go now
to heal it up now
but i know that it takes so much time
healing doesn't work that fast
i had a taste of deeper loving
but it will take my some to make it last
opened my eyes
stopped lying with my eyes
truth and pain flew through me
centuries of surviving with our eyes
opened my eyes
didn't know these walls were in front of me
didn't know these walls were a(/)p of me
holding energy from deep ancestry

bursting open from our buds
welcome spring
bursting
open
welcome spring, and let the winter slip away x2
tear, gonna tear my walls down
share, gonna share my flaws, so that I tear my walls down
it'll tear, it'll tear their walls, their violent walls down
share, gonna share my flaws, so that i tear my walls down
and let the winter slip away
