An indie-electro-folk song that explores how nature can ease the spiritual burdens of living in tumultuous times.


These End of Days I’ve been consumed
By this unfolding demise
But all I seek is a corner of peace
From which to see a new sun rise

All those years I wandered Earth
Without a map for my return
Running in the ruts, rubbing salt in cuts
The soundtrack to which Rome burns

I was out of my soul
I was out

Even though apocalypse is on its way
I don’t want to think about it
Out here in the garden a burden lifts
As the light goes out in the West
This might be the best of all possible worlds

Caught up in the tangle of abundance
I lost my way
But here confusion clears
A morning breaks my soul awake

All these years I’ve wandered Earth
Without an end to my desire
So much fuel but not enough air
To breathe embers into fire

I’ve been out of my soul
I’ve been out

The path so long has been concrete covered
Buried under a myth
But out here in the garden a burden lifts
As a light goes out in the West
A culture laid to rest
Giving birth to new possible worlds
