lyrics

The onslaught of violent images overwhelmed him. How long had he been here? How long was now when now is forever? How long ago had he died? What is death once you are eternal? What does eternal mean?

He found he had tears flowing freely from his eyes. Ziggy took his hand and she smiled, "It's okay. The tears just feed the Ocean. How do you think all this came to be?"

"Ziggy, how does anyone survive a life? How did I survive? How do the souls of the world live in the face of this suffering?"

She looked more beautiful to him than she had yet. Her eyes each seemed to glow with a different inner light. Without a word, she pointed to the screen. Yes... all the suffering, pain, and evil were still there. But now he could see a very faint, very fine line. It ran through everything: every broken moment, every flawed person, every unfulfilled hope, every infection or illness, every broken dream, every fear, and every broken heart.

He saw a wire...

The Wire (Wings of Night)

There's a wire
In the sky
With a message
For every eye
And through this wire
In the night
You can find me
In sacred light

The wire's through the dark
The wire's through the light
The wire's through your heart if you set it right
When you choose to forgive
And when you choose to fight
The wire will guide you past the wings of night

And this wire
You cannot see it
Until you find it
And do not flee it
Oh love is brilliant
And love is long
Love is sacred
Love is a song

The wire's through the dark
The wire's through the light
The wire's through your heart if you set it right
When you choose to forgive
And when you choose to fight
The wire will guide you past the wings of night

And through this wire
In the night
You can find me
In sacred light
