Ornate (Andromeda Suite)

Listen to Ornate by Richard Charles Stevens (Andromeda Suite)

Listen to Andromeda by Turbo Knight & Edictum

Had I not died
Then I would never have survived
Had I not felt cast aside
Then life would never have reprised
Had I not endured the pain
Been reassured of greater gain
Then unsecured would this way have remained
.
Had to introduce myself
Prove myself to future self
Before I could excuse myself
From every shaming tumour cell my human self paraded
Thus withdrew myself unaided
Knew myself too well and true to self related
Had to cling to fate
To unequivocally evade it
With little to no clue
Who knew I braved it
Had to be bared naked
To appreciate the psalm of unabbreviated charm my scars narrated
Seek the balm to heal each harm my beating heart translated
Seek the balm to heal each harm my beating heart translated
.
Seek
Seek the balm to heal each harm my beating heart translated
.
Had I not died
Then I would never have survived
Had I not felt cast aside
Then life would never have reprised
Had I not endured the pain
Been reassured of greater gain
Then unsecured would this way have remained
.
Had I not died
Then I would never have survived
Had I not felt cast aside
Then life would never have reprised
Had I not endured the pain
Been reassured of greater gain
Then unsecured would this way have remained
.
Had to lose myself
To find my way
Had to prove myself a mighty brave
(repeat)
.
Had I not remained calm as I patiently awaited
Then forever and a day may well have faded
And I would never famously have made it
I would never famously have made it
.
Had I not remained calm as I patiently awaited
Then forever and a day may well have faded
And I would never famously have made it
.
Had to lose myself
To find my way
Had to introduce myself
Before I could excuse myself
From every shame my human self made plain
From every shame my human self made plain
From every shame my human self made plain
.
Had to make a shield of guilt
And gilt-edged sword of shame
Settle pressing debts to better dress disordered brain
Fall away from stress and tension
Alter shape with best intentions
Orbit plane
Redress dimensions
To the bones
Disown contention
Lose myself
To find a way
To prove myself a mighty brave
.
Had to lose myself
To find my way
Had to prove myself a mighty brave
(repeat)
.
Had I not been seen to fail
Then I would not have been so keen prevailing
Had I not foreseen a dream
Then I would not have nearly reawakened
.
Had to lose myself
To find my way
.
Had to reach my soul
Before sincerely oath be taken
Reap its peaceful glow
Or else be cheerlessly forsaken
Show and tell
My broken shell
To break the hold of potent spell
With brave and bold
Forgave of blight
For all my days remaining nights
.
Had to love myself again
To love all else in naked flame
And had I not this way remained
Then I could not in closing say
Keep faith kid
.
