The Price (c)2015 Hunter Nash

raising atlantisOur paths keep on crossing, call it Kismet, call it legacy.

We find each other in dark places when our lives are never free.

Now your call comes in like clockwork, this time things have changed.

You are free from all that baggage, and I’ve dropped expectancy.

Did your brother win his game?

Did you talk to your Mom today?

Of course you can stop by, you know you can. You’ll always have a place to stay.

Of course there’s costs to walking with you, but the fee is so well spent. I’ll bear the flames of Hell in every step just to pay the rent.

I’d take the ferry ‘cross that river then refuse to pay the toll so I can come back round to find you. I’ll pay in blood and bathe my soul.

I’ve been chained against the rock, those birds fed,  I did not cry out.

Weigh my heart against the feather,the scales will even out.

Yes, the place is different. Just drop your things anywhere.

I missed your voice, I missed your laugh. Missed the way you criticize.

I missed the hair in the drain, the fridge left open and the questions in your eyes.

You ask if it’s all worth it, is it worth all the pain. Are sunlit moments near enough against the pounding of all the rain?

Of course there’s costs to walking with you, but the fee is so well spent. I’d bear the flames of Hell in every step just to pay the rent.

I’d take the ferry ‘cross the river, then refuse to pay the toll so I can come back ’round to find you. I’ll pay in blood and bathe my soul.

I’ve been chained against the rock, those birds fed, I did not cry out.

Weigh my heart against the feather, the scales will even out.

I’d take the ferry ‘cross that river then refuse to pay the toll, so I can come back ’round to find you. I’ll pay in blood and bathe my soul.

I’ve been chained against the rock, those birds fed I did not cry out.

Weigh my heart against the feather, the scales will even out.

Bore the flames of Hell in every step, I finally paid the toll.

Then came back round to find you, paid in blood and bathed my soul.
