A song partly inspired by the pleasure of contemplation in nature and by an episode of the 70s weird/horror series 'The Night Gallery' written by Rod Serling


I'll bury my ghosts
in the same grave as yours

like children we'll be
on the sand by the sea

and castles of sand
we'll build with our own hands

where our ghosts will be
washed away by the sea.

and when the past that holds back falls away
like ashes in water, I want you to stay
we are and we're never again our old selves
and we let tomorrow take care of itself

There's no hate in me
not for a man, a beast or a tree

and bark is my skin
and my eyes look within

and soil is my food
while the sun pierces through

I'm ready to unfold
from the deep dark undergrowth.
