See us through
We’re crystalline
We’re crystalline
We’re crystalline
.
See us through
We’re crystalline
We’re crystalline
We’re crystalline
(We’re crystalline)
.
Believe in me
Believe in you
Believe that we can see this through
Believe that we can paint the skies
With every colour shade and hue
Believe in me
Appreciably
And by the tides of ceaseless sea
I may make a believer out of you
(We’re crystalline)
.
Believe in me
Believe in you
Believe that we can see this through
Believe that we can paint the skies
With every colour shade and hue
Believe in me
Appreciably
And by the tides of ceaseless sea
I may make a believer out of you
.
See me through
I’m crystalline
(See me through
I’m crystalline)
And such need not be trivialised
(Such need not be trivialised)
For precious few reflect as I
(Precious few reflect as I)
And yet I’m glanced through distal eyes
(Yet I’m glanced through distal eyes)
The brittle ice about my heart
(The brittle ice about my heart)
Is liquefied as I embark
(Is liquefied as I embark)
On visualising through my art
(On visualising through my art)
Each part of my design
(Each part of my design)
.
Using brush strokes broad and fine
I decorate each canvas
With exactness and abstraction
From the frame that reins inaction
Like a bird
I seek migration
Unforeseen of altercation
To a place where faith is stationed
In the wake of great expansion
.
Believe in me
Believe in you
Believe that we can see this through
Believe that we can paint the skies
With every colour shade and hue
Believe in me
Appreciably
And by the tides of ceaseless sea
I may make a believer out of you
(We’re crystalline)
.
Hands-on as I stoke the flame
Which blazes in us all
In the hope
That one lost soul
May heed begotten call
To soften fall
And steep the rise
Of undistracted eagle flight
Soaring
Scoring skies to prize
Each captive freed of equal height
Breaking chains to wake to life
My vital signs then stabilise
Heartbeat nowise plagiarised
Starfleet in dilated eyes
Should pain exceed the gain
Then ever heedful I remain
Yet see no reason to abstain
From reprising most primeval of refrains
(We’re crystalline)
.
Believe in me

(We’re crystalline)
.
Believe in me
Believe in you
See us through
We’re crystalline
In every colour shade and hue
We’re fluid whence we liquefy
Should we be viewed through distal eyes
Then we can lead them true
(We’re crystalline)
And famed be the believers we renew
.
Famed be the believers we renew
Famed be the believers we renew
Famed be the believers we renew
(We renew)
(We renew)
(We renew)
.
Every day that passes
(Crystalline)
Sees me deepen as an artist
(Crystalline)
In my keep I hold the souls of old
(Crystalline)
And each extolled as masterpiece
(Crystalline)
Sweeping bold through arteries
(Crystalline)
The essence of the brave
(Crystalline)
And I am merely vessel
(Crystalline)
Keen to bleed them from my veins
(Crystalline)
.

In every colour shade and hue
We’re fluid whence we liquefy
Should we believe together
Through the never and between
In crystalline
Then we can see this through
And famed be the believers we renew
Famed be the believers we renew
(We’re crystalline)
