  Artist List   /   Silent Planet   /   Everything Was Sound

01. Inherit the Earth

Everything Was Sound
by Silent Planet


After the fire, after the rain, after the sacred kissed the profane 1 - when you came and
left again, such a captivating pain. After that night I left my comfort to find where your
body lies, I’d wander upon this grave then fall… I’d fall inside.
I searched the clearing for that spark, hands sifted through the ash - knowing what we
felt was real, but some delusions never pass.2 So I took shelter in the woods with the
naked shaking trees: Deciduous, fraternal twins, we’re both wilted, stem and leaf. Then
the mist turned sleet turned snow; my senses shook numb, I've nothing show
but a rain-stained book that once contained my literary charades: Now blots of ink,
archetypal shapes and shades bleed through each and every page.3 And I ask myself:
What’s the weight of my life on the scales of eternity?
We inherit the earth,4 we inherit the war.
I inhabit the wound, I dwell in the harm.
Oh how far we fall:5 We’re casualties of time.
Oh how far we fall: Begin to forgive existence.
Retreat back from reaching trees when a frigid shadow climbs inside of me - - -6 (that
specter of recompense) - - - It’s a sound I’ve heard ever since. Amidst the endless
mortal strife and the constantly dying light7 - the truth we felt from the start: “How can I
hold myself together when everything falls apart?”
We inherit the earth, we inherit the war.
I inhabit the wound, I dwell in the harm.
Oh how far we fall: We’re casualties of time.
Oh how far we fall: Forgive existence.
