Thanks to Becca for the artwork and thanks to Philippe for the microphone. Big thanks to my housemates for putting up with my constant noise making. Thanks to the Welsh government for paying for two thirds of my degree.
Painted by the strokes of my own doubt
Illusions of a greater start
Is it luck or is it something less we've come to see?
I'm running up a paper staircase as I'm Trying to find my way to you
A flower pushing through the cracks of coffins, fighting for the light of day
So tell me when, If I should, should be free of you
Like a prayer thrown in a hurricane
I'm desperate for an answer soon
If you only echo in the past I won't survive
Glory cracked, truth stretched thin: tell me what you conclude?
When all that I've seen, all that I've done, comes back to this somehow
Tell me where this river runs, do I light a flame or curse the dark?
