lyrics

Calling out repeatedly, the situation becomes clear.
Shifting into focus, slowly moving near to
the wide open spaces, leading from lonely places.
Driven by a distant hold, escaping the endless cold.

Out on the edge of demise,
I get a pleasant surprise.
The storm blows over
and I walk out the other side.

Twisting, twirling, overflowing, I see creatures in the dark light.
Circling my perimeter, as I walk the line at night.
Doubts waiting in the wings, surrounded by these far off things,
taunting from a distance, looming across the expanse.

Out on the edge of demise,
I get a pleasant surprise.
The storm blows over
and I walk out the other side.

Navigating a slippery slope
I have a glimmer of hope;
must keep trudging
through nature's cruel judging.

Coming out the indefinite, acting on the unforeseen.
Despite all the struggle, our efforts were redeemed.
Through the insurmountable, we sidestepped the impossible.
Fought through the winter to triumph again in the spring.
