The single release from our 2nd album "To Paint a Bird of Fire".


Rainy afternoon
walking in the sky,
a bird and its glow
paints fiery July.

Since that bizarre day -
all summers in between -
I've longed for that bird:
it's fire and it's creed.

Now I try to travel
into worlds that are just mine.
Searching for that bird
I feel the stranger in me dies.
Days will keep on going
and my fever I can't overcome.

To chase the sky's squire
to it's horizon confined.
To paint a bird of fire,
to live and to die
