Prite & Promise A Drunken Stalemate

"The Fence" is track four 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.

StoryEdit

In this chapter, Prill has made it home to Prite. Much love is expressed, then a few months later, Prite tells Prill she is pregnant. Prill had previously mentioned the desire to start fresh, but now his dream seems impossible. Not wanting to be a deadbeat father, he decides he needs to attain some great sum of wealth in order to give his wife and unborn child the life they deserve, so he decides he is going to try to catch "Fothcrah, Queen of the Sea," who is a myth that sailors and fisherman alike have chased for centuries.

LyricsEdit

From the heart, again I felt beat

And the dawn—your smile

O' I concede!


My revered standing in the expanse

To my surprise, a cantered stride

Is the proposal that you'd yearned for my embrace

And as we lock

And as we cite

You ached to tell me something


Such words merely bounced off

My naked ears did not understand

My chaos—controlled,

But contorted by hearsay

O' I'm divided!


We might have made a treasure weaved in cloth

Of the kind that can't be forgotten

Like a fire spreading far beyond the shore,

Such a fierceness was our love


You told me all about your passions and your funny dreams

-A portrait that was painted in the dark

For I was lying on a bed of whispers in my sleep

And nothing that you said would stay affix


Many hours and days and weeks went by

I saw that I could not provide

Shall I stay by your side?

And as the moonlight shined into the sea,

The reflection lied...

The reflection lies!


How I could not spend my whole life like that!

How I would despair!

I tasted a sip of ambrosia

-Waking into divine


We might have made a treasure weaved in cloth

Of the kind that can't be forgotten

Like a fire spreading far beyond the shore,

Such a fierceness was our love


I would not believe such an absurd inception

Could test my honor and provoke my pride

And just when I'd fenced in my garden,

The wild grew rampant for me

When through black, a fruit I was shown

-The seed for my incessant soil

O' I had to affirm!

I'd sail out before the high tide

I need to be the best again!


In inquisition for a betterment,

I wound a rope that slowly thread my way down

I was a stitch away from lunacy

Splendidly bursting through the shell


If I had a choice, I'd surely stay

But like a curtain closing on the stage,

Where else to go but back with the director?

Into the blue—into the sea,

Into a frightened ocean!

I would find what would get us by

Ride the wings of desire through the fence!
