Oh Lonely Fortress! - Lyrics

There's always been a buzz, the locusts swarming up,
From underneath our guilty feet.
A giant underground, with a castle for a crown,
An ancient fast asleep

But there's a voice in our ear, and a crack in the mirror
A passage left out of the psalm
Oh lonely fortress!

Well the word it spread through town, and the word was written down
"Just as the nightshade came from seed, we are tethered by this gravity!"

If not on the word we rely, than not on the world we rely
Oh lonely fortress!

We'll count down the years, ‘til the earth starts to quake
The mountains will crumble, the red pine will break
As the echoes surround, and a trade wind appears
We'll make like a ghost, we'll make like a ghost
(hollow as a dream)
With dreams light as feathers, this life like a stone
Will sink to the bottom of our ocean alone
As my lungs fill with fire, through watery eye
I see the stars re-align.

If not on the word we rely, than not on the world we rely
Oh lonely fortress!

Writer(s): Robert Beaver, Eliza Jones
