Grounded, I Am Traveling Light

from Varuna by The Republic Of Wolves



So we were living out our days 
in an old abandoned palisade 
Sweeping chimneys 'til our backs hurt 
and singing 'til our throats were dry. 

Scraping the red from every rusty nail 
Stitching the carpet tears 
We kept our salty voices hushed 
You looked loveliest all dressed in dust

And I cleared the cobwebs while you slept, 
set a fire that we'd both regret. 
You woke up coughing out a storm 
and we never made it out the door 

'Cause I for one was taking my time. 

I think it's time you and I should come home 
It's been three years and I can feel it in my bones. 
If turning back means I'm turning back alone 
then I guess I'm on my own. 

It was six hundred degrees 
We had nothing to protect our feet 
from the glowing embers hardening our soles 
Our burning bed of coal 

But that fever that we shared 
wasn't nothing that we couldn't bear 
We just wrapped around each other 
and we sweated out our worst nightmares. 

And I think that's when I was born, 
in your arms during a firestorm. 
We were perfectly in place 
We were filling up the empty space. 

But you were tired of wasting your time. 

Your spirits fled from all those bad ideas we bled 
I twisted up all of your words 
And I turned to brass while you were tearing down the past 
Now I'm trailing 
I'm traveling light 
and losing my memory.
