lyrics

On some mossy table in a
Forest of ferns;
The resonant hollow of a
Grecian urn;
On a lattice of starlight in an
Adamantine chest;
The potpourri bedding of an
Eagle's nest.

Down a red wine well
In a rocket ship shell
This is the place we'll call home.

In some amber casing of a
Dinosaur wing;
In some rare collection of
Ancient things;
In some spoken vesper twixt the
Teeth and the tongue;
In some lullaby that was
Never sung.

To the heedless unknown
We can offer our bones
Find a place to call home.

In a space without time
In the back of your mind
This is the place we'll call home.
