What Remains - The Forger's Tale

Lyrics > The Forger's Tale

THE FORGER’S TALE

I’VE BEEN SEARCHING AND ANGLING FOR THE TRUTH
I’VE LOOKED HIGH AND LOW UNDER ROCKS AND IN THE BOOKS
I’VE TRAVELED DOWN SOME ROAD ON A WHIM OR A DARE
THE WIND WHISPERS A NAME, I PRETEND NOT TO HEAR

WHEN THE TRUTH IT EMERGED I WAS DAZED AND BEMUSED
NOT GLEEFUL OR RELIEVED I WAS SIMPLY
WORN OUT AND FAR REMOVED
I REALIZED MY JOURNEY WAS COMING TO AN END
THE WIND WHISPERS A NAME, I PRETEND NOT TO BEND

IT’S ALL IN THE TIMING OR THE PULL OF THE MOON
THE HOWLING OF AN OGRE OR A SOOTHSAYER’S FOOL
OR MAYBE IT’S THE CROWD THAT PAINTED A PICTURE FOR ME
I GUESS I FOLLOWED THEIR LEAD
AND FELL FOR THE FORGER’S TALE

I DREAMED OF A WINSOME YOUNG MAIDEN LAST NIGHT
WHEN I WOKE I FOUND MYSELF DANCING ALONE IN DIM LIGHT
THE MAN WHO KNEW TOO MUCH SAID BELIEF IS IN THE EYE
THE WIND WHISPERS A NAME, I PRETENDED NOT TO LIE

HOW DID I MISS THE TRUTH, WAS I UNDER A SPELL?
OR A CONJURED TRANCE DRUNK WITH
FALSE BELIEF IN MYSELF?
IT WAS RIGHT THERE BEFORE, IT WAS THERE IN PLAIN SIGHT
THE WIND PULLED ME IN, AS I HOWLED THROUGH THE NIGHT

IT’S ALL IN THE TIMING OR THE PULL OF THE MOON
THE HOWLING OF AN OGRE OR A SOOTHSAYER’S FOOL
OR MAYBE IT’S THE CROWD THAT PAINTED A PICTURE FOR ME
I GUESS I FOLLOWED THEIR LEAD
AND FELL FOR THE FORGER’S TALE

Hamden, February 2009
