You don't know it
but you set off the spark
that ignited the wick in my heart
And now you're trapped and have no way
to put out all the refining flames.

Στεφανος, a dream I had

He will come through you
pale and thin
and holding a single red rose
he'll let the world know
there is so much we can't know or understand or fathom
there is so much pain
but he will always be certain
his mother loves him.

This will be the undoing of the legacy your ancestors handed you
