[Verse 1]
The sky took its cue, every color and hue on display
Till thick veils of indigo signaled the end of the day
But each landscape that lies in the mirror of your eyes turns to grey

Ooh, ooh
Ooh, ooh

[Verse 2]
On the edge of a knife, it's like you're living your life on the stage
You're talking through glass, we're just square photographs on a page
Oh, we're never alone but we're each in our own little cage

Ooh, ooh
Ooh, ooh

[Chorus]
You're here but it's clear you're just salt and shadow
Here, but half a world away
You're here, but you're merely a hologram
Here, still so far away

Ooh, ooh
Ooh, ooh

[Verse 3]
You manage to hide even here by my side where we lay
Here on this bed where I sense every thread start to fray
And I feel our skin touch but there's only so much it can say

[Chorus x3]
You're here but it's clear you're just salt and shadow
Here half a world away
You're here but you're nearly a hologram
Here, still so far away



Haven's Corner

The sky took its cue
Every color and hue on display
'Til thick veils of indigo signaled the end of the day
But each landscape that lies in the mirror of your eyes turns to grey
Ooh, ooh
On the edge of a knife's
Like your living your life on the stage
You're talking through glass
Would you swear photographs on a page
Oh we're never alone but we're each in our own little cage
Ooh, ooh
You're here but it's clear
You're just salt and shadow
Here half a world away
You're here but you're nearly a hologram
Here, still so far away
Ooh, ooh
You manage to hide even here by my side where we lay
Here in this bed where I sense every thread start to fray
And I feel our skin touch but there's only so much you can say
You're here but it's clear
You're just salt and shadow
Here, half a world away
You're here but you're nearly a hologram, so
Here, still so far away
Ooh, ooh
You're here but it's clear
You're just salt and shadow
Here half a world away
You're here but it's clear
You're just salt and shadow
Here but half a world away

You're here but you're merely a hologram
So near but still so far away

You manage to hide even here by my side where we lay

And I feel our skin touch but there's only so much it can say

You're here but it's clear
You're just salt and shadow
Here but half a world away
You're here but you're merely a hologram
So near but still so far away

You're here but it's clear
You're just salt and shadow

Zoey Masters Covers

I love how this masterpiece ends with the intro of "Hurricane", so if you listen to the album on repeat, it blends well together and gives "Hurricane" a fresh feel. Thank you, Thrice, for a new favorite album!

Brian J. Carnevale

I wish I could tell thrice how much they've meant to me over a dozen plus years.

sean lohr

I wish I could tell Dustin what it means to me

silent ninja

As we all grow... These songs keep it all together. I am sitting by my sleeping 4 year old son... He is so beautiful. This song bends my tears of the years passed in battle, I see in his future a peace... One I've never known. He is my salt... Ill be his shadow.

@Blazin Puffs as you said, many of his lyrics are pretty straightforward, and it usually requires effort to interpret them in different ways.
Now, I'm no fan of religions, but even this kind of lyrics have substance and quality. He generally knows how to pick his words xD and I don't have to ask him anything for now, just thank him (done that once).

But it'd be interesting to hear him analyzing his stuff. Well, he's done it a bit with his solo work and those videos.

@hawkstrike18+ I would ask Dustin what he thinks honestly. Yes time is indeed a crazy thing. Simply leaving means it passes by.

@Blazin Puffs funny how you ended up mentioning Tolkien. His masterpieces were the first thing that came to my mind earlier, as I was typing that reply. I mean, I've seen ppl in comment sections of videos with LotR music or interviews of Tolkien, who obviously support a certain hateful and demented side (won't say more to not make it too political) and admire his work at the same time (and that music...), and always wonder what they see in it... In the end I think we all see what we want to see, but imo that's kinda sad sometimes. How distorted and twisted some ppl's lens must be, to take something from a song/movie/book, etc that doesn't make sense, doesn't "exist"..?
When it makes sense it's a different story, ofc, it can be quite interesting and even inspiring. Maybe I'll try to write some lyrics with double meaning and see how it goes (not that I have an idea on how you really write lyrics, let alone make music, but I take notes of things/thoughts I come up with, just in case they prove to be useful, and to pretend I'm not completely wasting my life, lol).


As for this band's songs, I think my favorites are the most depressing ones, altho I found this band just when I started trying to be more positive (and was mostly listening to Kings of Leon, Birdy, Lights, Chvrches, stuff like these mostly, and less of the usual rock/alternative). Can't believe it's been almost a decade...
