lyrics:  

His glasses are crushed
As I walk into the blur
Grope and trip and stumble
To the stall
These walls are rushed
One color tells me much
When I find a shade that suits my soul
Still the water makes no sound
As I prepare to hunt the beast
A transcendence to kiss him on my way

(chorus:)
The drums I hear
The pain I fear
Time to pick up
A piece for me to share

A little sip of something
Warms the edge away
And shifts my focus on today
The warm carin' touch
Of a distance lover back
It took this much to look me in the eye
A frenzy of flesh
Dances tusks from my gut
A transcendence to kiss him on my way here

(chorus)

The flickering light
It paints the night
Apprehension sticks
The jungle consumes
These men of my likes
Why should I be different?
So I nod and accept this blessing gift
Of my relatives and friends around the fire
Still warm I walk away
I think I will be back
But that will be decided in the morning

Still water makes no sound
As I prepare to hunt the beast
A transcendence to kiss him on my way

(chorus)
