1. Ouroboros

From the recording A Child's Bestiary


Ouroboros Darkness is beautiful When you can see the spark Of a tiny, little light Dancing through the shadows Darkness is terrible When the light seems far away Much too far away to reach Midnight is closing in Fear will choke down our resolve Like a serpent maw grown wide Her tail inching ever near We’re consuming our own fears Surrendering our days of bliss Precious moments in the sun One life, one chance to live That’s all we ever have “And by strange alchemy of brain Our pleasures always turn to pain Being young and dipped in folly We fall in love with melancholy.” (E.A.Poe) We are the snake We are the serpent We are eating our own tail And the circle grows ever smaller And the noose grows ever tighter We are slowly choking on our own fear
