THIS IS A SONG ABOUT BIOLUMINESCENCE

lyrics

I saw a light in the woods last night
I took a lantern and a knife and went outside

and I praise the land that called me here
I thank the moonless night that made it clear

that there was magic in the woods
and something seldom seen or understood:
that what is meaningless is good --
I'd hold that wisdom if I could

I took the darkness in my hands
and tried to make it meld with what was bright
there was no fight

the darkness swallowed everything
every flashing eye and beating wing
and what devoured us was good --
I'd hold that wisdom if I could

the night enveloped all around
every northern light and throaty sound
and that oblivion was good --
I'd hold that wisdom if I could
