Runaways

There’s so much I want to see
so take my hand and run away with me
right through the gatekeepers
  into the verdant black.
They can wave that fiery sword
— but baby we’re not going back!

Can you hear it sighing in the trees,
beyond these houses and sanctuaries?
We tasted the fruit,
  all dripping down,
    that juice was sensual.
Now there’s something out there
that I wanna know!

Be my shelter and I’ll be your light
We don’t need no guide
Let our hearts decide, oh
And if judgement fall on where we lie,
let it fall like feathers,
‘cuz here together
We stand.

So let ’em cry
Just let them weep, baby
They talk of angels falling,
but their own paths are steep.
And now they’re staring
  as if they’re not wearing
    mortal skin!
But there’s something beyond here
That I wanna know!

Be my shelter and I’ll be your light
We don’t need no guide
Let our hearts decide, oh
And if judgement fall on where we lie,
let it fall like feathers,
‘cuz here together
We stand.

(Born in succession:
Love and Transgression.
Born in transgression:
Love is succession.)
