Vessel

lyrics

This voice is a vessel for the hopeless
For the voiceless and the fragile
A vessel for those who look skyward
Longing to leave this cold earth behind

This voice is a vessel for the breathless
For the motionless and the dying
A vessel for those who stare blindly
Waiting for change beyond their control
For the motherless droves who've given up
And pinned their hopes on falling stars

This voice is a vessel for the faithless
For the nameless and the broken
A vessel for those who look downward
Those unable to lift their heads high
A vessel for those who stare bleakly
Burdened by the pain in their eyes

Those who've heard my cold voice calling
"who has stolen the stars from the sky?"
I will carry you far from here
Further than you could know
I will help you reach the end
Never to descend

A vessel to carry you to a place in the sky
I will be your sacrifice, your vessel
A place where we can shine our lanterns high
Connecting in the plains of darkness
I will carry you, I'll birth you to the sky
I will be your sacrifice, your vessel
A place where we can shine our lanterns high
Connecting in the plains of isolation

Deliverance into unending light
Scattered like ephemeral embers in the night
Sent above to cast a glow so bright
Together I know we can make it right
