An alternate mix.

lyrics

It was an age of desire
It was an age of stone
Sneaking out of the windows at dark
Of your ramble house of thorns

It was an age where each breath
Looked like a miracle
Sealing itself to float in the night
In those fleeting mists you exhaled

It was an age of making rain
And standing out in the storm
Every watery bead to travel your skin
Like a pilgrim coming home

Can you see
That glow behind the trees?
They whirl and they kiss in the smoke
The folk of
Never-never-sleep

It was an age of a new kind of fuel
That slowed your body down
And every footfall under your feet
Would never have touched the ground

So aware of the space in your bones
Seething with a secret stream
Two parts poison and two parts cure
And one part of everything

It was the age of the mountain
That made you feel so young
It was an age where any solid object
Could pass through you unharmed

It was an age where the touch of each stranger
Had the feeling of repeating your birth
And the sound of their fingers in the webs of your hands
Was like the smell of new rains in the earth

Can you see
That glow behind the trees?
They whirl and they kiss in the smoke
The folk of
Never-never-sleep
