Light & Shadow

I heard a rumor we are
Blind as a one-way mirror
Watchers outside
A window in time
Follow us all of our lives

Light and shadow
Light and shadow
Living on the plane of

Light and shadow
Light and shadow
Caught between the frames of

Light and shadow
Light and shadow
All we are made of

Light and shadow
Light and shadow
All we will become

I heard a rumor we are
Bound in unending spirals
Watchers they spy
And rewind the time
Replaying our lives

Light and shadow
Light and shadow
Living on the plane of

Light and shadow
Light and shadow
Caught between the frames of

Light and shadow
Light and shadow
All we are made of

Light and shadow
Light and shadow
All we will become

Our flesh and blood
So real, so sure
But to their touch
We're fleeting ether

Where is the wall
Dividing our worlds?
More to it all
Than we've ever heard

Light and shadow
Light and shadow
All we are made of

Light and shadow
Light and shadow
All we will become

Flickers of light
This life

We are flickers of light
In this life

As in a sťance, we can call them by name,
And they will appear, wearing the same dresses,
The same gestures, the choreography of mummers,

Forever transparent as anything that moves
Indefinitely through space, a sunburst
From a distant star, a flight without wings,

Until the world slips from its spinning axis,
The edges clatter against the guides,
Brown coronas eclipse each face,

And the light of the projector burns through.

Flickers of light
This life

We are flickers of light
In this life

Light and shadow
All we know
Lumière's ladder
Row by row
