This song was originally written by Jason Hoopes in 2009, and evolved/arranged/composed by The Atomic Bomb Audition over the following years.

Recorded at Sharkbite Studios, Oakland, Summer 2013 by Scott Evans.


winter is dying
days grow and grow long
what am I finding?
time to be on
you said light from above leads us astray
but below we become weightless
one life at a time
two lives intertwine
I set the new fire
my breath sends it higher
received by love
deceived by love
but I can't stand on such remote uneven ground
two eyes look around
it burns its way through our words
it turns all inward
it breathes
it brings the gifts
consumed by the flame the soul returns


from Infinite Fires, released January 23, 2014
