You lie awake alone at night listening to the water rise
Dream your ship is coming in
You know they all rise with the tide

But she keeps calling you back
Calling you back to her
Sweet familiar whispers from the other side keep calling you back
To your longest Day

The Mother drank the flood to save her children
Now they've all grown strong
But promises were made next time we're all gonna burn

Come down from the mountain, blow across the moors
Tell me you're the rising sun and I'm yours
And I'll beg you to believe in the will of the mystery
Hang it from your heart plant it in your dreams
Just come on back to your longest Day


from To The Earth (Volume IV, Estival), released June 21, 2017
