lyrics

I stand at the apex
I live on the cusp
A voice out of nowhere (echo, echo)
Tells me I must (far beyond me, we are, we are)

At this great height
Staring into the night
I wonder how far away from the next star
My voice my echo (echo, echo) echo so far

Echo echo, echo echo
Echo so far
Echo so far

I howl to the dark
And the mountain wolves bark
Like striking a match
And watching it spark
Like tearing through skin
And watching the stark
Change between living and not
I am living and not

With a howl to the moon
He will come for me soon
As I set his soul free
He will find me, he will find me

With a howl to the grave
To the whole world I'll say
Bow down to me
Bow down

Echo echo, echo echo
Echo echo, echo echo
Echo echo

In my face, in my hair
He is everywhere
I am hotter than sun
I can't run, I won't run

I won't run, I won't run
I won't run, I won't run
I won't run, I won't run
I won't run, I won't run
I won't run, I won't run
I won't run, I won't run
I won't run, I won't run
I won't run, I won't run

I might be losing direction
What won't I do for my own protection?
I might be losing direction
What won't I do for my own protection?
I might be losing direction
What won't I do for my own protection?

I once was a seed, just a joke, just a child
But now I'm a weed that's uprooted and wild
No rules can restrain us
No trap can contain us
Just watch as this joke
Fills the night time with smoke

With a howl to the moon
He will come for me soon
As I set his soul free
He will find me, he will find me

With a howl to the grave
To the whole world I'll say
Bow down to me
Bow down

Echo echo, echo echo
Echo echo, echo echo
Echo echo

It once was a seed, just a joke, just a child
But now I'm a weed that's uprooted and wild
