An Outset In The Sea The Fence

"Prite & Promise" is track three on the Hungry Lights studio album "The Awry Ascent." Remember that this is a summary, not the entire story! It is 1-10% of what is actually going on—just the skeleton.

In this chapter, Prill is swimming home to his wife, "Prite." He has a lot of regret and further expresses his desire to erase his past and start over. He is pulled underwater by a mysterious creature, but manages to break free and survive. 

LyricsEdit

I had taken long to your shore

From within the febrile sea, I'd finally emerged

On the surface, I kept aspire to never stop

My muscles ached, and I was torn


I deny that I am exhausted

-Soon to end 

My paramour stood open-armed on the sand where first took our glance

I'd keep the promise that I made along that bank


All my life, you're all I need

The one to draw prosperity

Erasing you would be my fault, and I'd not cry



Stroke by stroke, my arms felt like concrete

I kept my head above surface, but I choked the brackish water

O' I seethed!

It pushed waves of death deep inside my head

-Vibrations of psalm

Amidst the swell, I heard you!


All my life, you're all I need

The one to draw prosperity

Erasing you would be my fault, and I'd not cry



But as I inched the forward, how kelp bristled my feet!

Entangled in those fingers

And I'd no strength for a counter

It wrenched and pulled me under

I kept my hands aloft

I would not break my promise

Not here, so close to you!


O' I grabbed the strings, and I dug into that knot!

Pushed to your shore, I stumbled out


All my life, I tried to be the one to draw prosperity

I'm wishing everything I drew was gone, and I'd not cry
