I’m coming around to the world outside my window
They’re taking it down and I know the view will change
And the sound of another prisoner’s call
Falls like a leaf
With what’s hidden in these walls
It’s been a long time but the
dust has started settling
I’m writing my name in it’s
skin, and every day it grows thicker, like the branches of the ash
That hide my face
In the safety of these walls

There’s something that you used to tell me
That time can kill where patience fails
You told me not to be a stranger
I was and the wind fell from my sails

The corners won’t hold
the glass that makes my window
It’s melting away
into the cracks made by the wind
And the river at the bottom of the stairs
Calls out my name
As I sink within these walls

I’m turning away
from the world outside my window
I’ll no longer stay
with these castings from the war
And the door now opens out instead of in
And as I leave
I hear you singing in these walls
