Lyrics

Sanctity

Written By: Estere Dalton

Do you remember those cold August nights
When we lay in bed and said what was on our mind
I stayed warm with you by me
Then I think of all the love you gave
And how I carelessly squandered it all away
It makes sleepless nights grow colder

But who am I to try to change your mind
Now that it’s already made
And as I reach to hold your jaded hand
I realise that it’s too late

Goodbye sanctity
Goodbye sanctity
Goodbye sanctity
Goodbye sanctity
Now I foolish and blind
Have sacrificed your trust
And I foolish and blind
Have crucified your love

Now I dance upon a wooden floor
Like a runaway ballerina come to life
Memories are the music
As I pirouette through the fading light
Curling trails of smoke disjointed time
Life without you passes by me

But who am I to try to change your mind
Now that it’s already made
And as I reach to hold your jaded hand
I realise that it’s too late

Goodbye sanctity
Goodbye sanctity
Goodbye sanctity
Goodbye sanctity
Now I foolish and blind
Have sacrificed your trust
And I foolish and blind
Have crucified your love
I foolish and blind
Have sacrificed your trust
And I foolish and blind
Have crucified your love

For corrupt webs of spun desire
For a thirst quenched by hollow fire
For corrupt webs of spun desire
For a thirst quenched by hollow fire
For corrupt webs of spun desire
For a thirst quenched by hollow fire

Rusty

Written By: Estere Dalton


He stroked my hand I held his knees
He whispered softly to me
That the love was gone and its time to move on
But how could I let him fool me
And so I plucked his eyes from out his face
And turned them back at him
And he saw his soul oh through those holes
Right then he started a cryin

I said love to be
I’ve got worlds to show you
Let me give you my rusty key
He put it in the lock and looked at me in shock
Coz in the end he couldn’t open me

And so he sat in grace and stared at my face
Confused at the silence between us
Then he screwed in back his eyes
Looked at me and sighed
Said honey ain’t so hard to pretend

Oh well his countenance was weak
And his voice became so bleak
That he trapped in all his words inside him
And then the sound that then came out
Was louder then a shout
And it told me all the things he’d kept in

I said love to be
I’ve got worlds to show you
Let me give you my rusty key
He put it in the lock and looked at me in shock
Coz in the end he couldn’t open me

And so I cried for the love that was broken
And he cried for his raw and bleeding eyes
And we cried for our putrid affection
Then we parted to dry the tears from our eyes

Yes I cried for the love that was broken
And he cried for his raw and bleeding eyes
And we cried for our putrid affection
Then we parted to dry the tears from our eyes

And now a love is born
In a new form and my heart can feel more clearly
Oh what I knew before I know even more
Coz only truth is deserving of me

So I say love to be
I’ve got worlds to show you
Let me give you my rusty key
He put it in the lock and looked at me in shock
Coz in the end he couldn’t open me

Black Sunshine

Written By: Estere Dalton


I find a sign in a single thread
Take in its value then I empty my head
Make way for movement
See it follow in time
Shed off the detail and make it mine
Eat up the contrasts
Lick them just like an ice cream
The flavours burn me
Let the knowledge be my healing

I always get myself in difficult situations
Oh I didn’t see it coming
All this black sunshine
I try to free myself from this capacity of life
Oh but I’ll be with it to the end

This sound surrounds me
And runs deep into my bones
Satisfied silence fills me from head to toe
Naked expression that reminds me of a melody
When you stand before me
It makes the distance seem a tragedy

I always get myself in difficult situations
Oh I didn’t see it coming
All this black sunshine
I try to free myself from this capacity of life
Oh but I’ll be with it to the end

I sowed my seed you see
You mean that much to me
My love to the world
Love to the world
And as I melt your bones
Come sing along with me
Of love to the world
Yes love to the world
Bada bab bada bab bab ba dee dee
Bada bab bada bab bab ba dee dee yeah

I always get myself in difficult situations
Oh I didn’t see it coming
All this black sunshine
I try to free myself from this capacity of life
Oh but I’ll be with it to the end
