Olivia Chrestomanci - Encounters At The End Of The World lyrics

Truth will find its peace of mind
in narrative told many times,
like men that dive below the ice
in suits that lend them skin like whales.
The funny thing is people take
great passion in for passion's sake,
visualize the present
as the past within our future tales.

So we live in three dimensions
and we talk of other people
Only if we speak of others
can we speak about ourselves.
I think I think the world will sink
Will [we'll] drown in glaciers melted down.
Will [we'll] fade beneath the limning tide
Re-emerge when we have died
But I believe in home.
I believe in comin' home
I believe in home.

Susan does her research
in her lab down by the field.
She tests the swimming particles
in hopes that they will yield.
Like farmers raising up their eyes
and praying for the rain,
Susan trusts her particles
to break down and explain.

Charlie tells his children
that their names will someday fade
And his eldest son has nightmares
He will take unto the grave.
And the favored younger son
becomes obsessed with procreation,
fathers 700 children
singing his name in adulation.

So we live in three dimensions
and we talk of other people
Only if we speak of others
can we speak about ourselves.
I think I think the world will sink
Will [we'll] drown in glaciers melted down.
Will [we'll] fade beneath the limning tide
Re-emerge when we have died
But I believe in home.
I believe in comin' home
I believe in home.
