Lyrics:
I flew beyond the sun before it was time
Burning all the gold that held me inside my shell
Waiting for you to pull me back in
I almost had the world in my sight

Lost love
Bright eyes fading
Faster than stars falling
How can I tell you that I've failed
Tell you I failed

Falling from grace cause I've been away too long
Leaving you behind with my lonesome song
Now I'm lost in oblivion

I tried to burrow a hole into the ground
Breaking all the fingers and the nails from my hand
The eyes of a child see no wrong
Ignorant bliss impending doom

Lost love
Bright eyes fading
Faster than stars falling
How can I tell you that I've failed
Tell you I failed

Falling from grace cause I've been away too long
Leaving you behind with my lonesome song
Now I'm lost in

Falling from grace cause I've been away too long
Leaving you behind with my lonesome song
Now I'm lost in oblivion

    Yeah, I love that damn song and you are correct. The chorus is always stuck in my head. "Now I'm lost in oblivion..." Fan fucking tastic...I love this album, too...

    Cheers!

    Tis one of my favorite Mastodon songs, ever.
    And yes, I *did* download the leak =)

    The chorus always gets stuck in my head, btw. I think I've Cracked the Skye (listened to the full album) around 19 times now.
