Song Lyrics

Cageless Birds
by Jonathan David Helser, Melissa Helser

Album: Endless Ocean / Bottomless Sea - Extended Versions

Standing on the shore of decision,
Looking into the face of adventure
Desire to abandon all I know

What pushes me is rooted
Somewhere between
Misunderstanding and knowing
Knowing that what I want to understand
Is not within my reach,
So I ponder my escape.
Not knowing what lies ahead
Adventure in theory is,
Is full of excitement
And bleeds with passion for life
Adventure in reality is full
Of breathless moments, silent nights,
And wounds that leave
Scares of memory on a heart.

Can I go the distance?
Can I give all my mind to get
what the messenger is saying?
Can I surrender my knowing?
Will I survive the humility of ignorance
to obtain a treasure that earthly gold cannot buy?
Will I ask the question of honesty,
even if the answer leads me to the land of repentance?

All of these thoughts flood my mind.
As I stand on the shore of choosing
and in the distance of my wandering
I see with clear eyes a flock of wild
beautiful birds.
Swooping clearly in my direction,
as if they see me and are coming for me.
And how strange it is that their eyes are full of clarity.
And the melody of their flapping wings sings out,
'We are coming for you'.

A song is waking up
Wake up, songbird
We want to hear your melodies
Songbird, wake up.
Start singing.
You're not in your cage anymore,
bound by your shame anymore,
the walls that held you in prison,
the gate is flung wide open
Start singing cageless bird.
