Drawn Back in Joy

DRAWN BACK IN JOY (Tiresias intellection)
(Lyrics: Malin Kjelsrud)

He witnesses life through glued-on pearls
patiently awaiting the shift
While wearing names of boys and girls
he’s scolded and blindly kissed

She tries to float above the birds
listening out for songs and signs
they can’t do anything to reverse the curse
She’s punished over ancient sins

Regret –
She hesitates to introduce the damned
To drink the blood of ghosts to understand
Pain of insight no one wants to find
advice not followed, choosing to stay blind

Forget –
Refuse the future memories revealed by fire
the boy will be just fine, he’ll stay alive
as long as he won’t try to know himself
Call him by his name and nothing else

Their eyes are looking more than human
voices sounding larger than themselves
Open eyes of wiser men and women
together they may break the spells

As dark night fades into clear day
we’re moving on with wings drawn back in joy
