lyrics

Once there was a whisper so slight that nobody heard
Then quietly, it began to take over
and the mystery was explained away

With everything accounted for, this cold calculated heart tore
And it’s taking away everything that the mystic gave

So now I walk backwards from this cold and empty room
And gather everything I left, take it out of this tomb
Sanitized, devoid of life, completely empty
All that stands in this temple is one naked and fruitless tree

The heart cannot be replaced
There is a lineage of open eyes and wisdom
The heart cannot be replaced
There is a lineage that inspires inner vision
The heart cannot be replaced

Go ahead and pretend that it’s all cold and dead
So you can take what you want just to get a little bit ahead
You may find yourself alone at the top
You made an enemy of life because you forgot who you are

So now I walk backwards from this cold and empty room
And gather everything I left, take it out of this tomb
