about

"Science is a story. History is a story. These are the stories we tell ourselves to make ourselves come true." -Jeanette Winterson

lyrics

O the rain dances down
In tin shoes on the housetop
And the dark cloaks the sky like a grave

But in your eyes there’s a spark
And it glows like the candlelight
Flickering feebly against the pane

Just close your eyes and you’ll see
The world as it’s meant to be
The world as you only have dreamed
Open your eyes now and be
The one you were meant to be
As true and as strong and as brave

Do not flinch from the rain
Do not dread the dark of the night
Do not cower before your own tomb

Sing a story of day
Sing a story of redemption
Sing a story to make us come true

We’ll close our eyes and we’ll see
The world as it’s meant to be
The world as we always believed
Open our eyes and we’ll be
The ones we have hoped to be
As true and as strong and as brave
