The Sacred

neuromech Hi Lydia, I love the honesty and depth of your lyrics in all your songs.
I love The Sacred lyrics for the fresh personal perspective shared of your evolving mind/soul state. I admire the courage it takes to sing what is so personally painful and your sacrifices are much appreciated, beyond these words.
Your voice is still perfect to me, still with you and will be ready when you are.
Thank you.


The sun seems lost, the stars look weird
I can't read the rainclouds overhead
Leaves grow warm, limbs get cold
Am I getting wiser or just getting old?

And I don't recognise my neighbour yet
And I don't recognise the sacred

I feel lost, I feel weird
I feel the rainclouds overhead
North seems south, lungs feel black
Have I really lost it? I wanna go back

And I don't know why I can't just relax
And I don't know why time is crawling
And I don't know why I down-play my pride
And I don't know why I get stage fright

I can't remember why, I don't know how
This is what I'm doing now

Head in the dark, hand on heart
We're gonna make it out now and turn it into art

And somewhere deep inside I hold my breath
And when I'm on my knees I thank my legs
And I don't know what's holding me upright
'cause I don't recognise the sacred
