about

Twenty-Six is one of Shadowlands’ more personal offerings, grappling with conceptions of God, faith, existential nihilism/absurdism, & crippling doubt. It’s about accepting the brokenness of our human condition & having faith that meaning is attainable, in spite of our limitations.

lyrics

twenty-six & full of it
sifting through the bullshit
of my fading youth’s façade
young enough to feel the spark
& old enough to fear the dark
balancing upon the line
against what it means to burn

& still I yearn
hanging by a thread
of anything that’s left
of my innocence
alas, looking for reflection
in shards & broken pieces
of shattered glass

for all it’s worth in change
have I remained the same?
having known enough to guide my fate
while impending prospects, they wane
against a solid faith in drought
I pray & wait for rain

& still I yearn
resolved in the fires of my conviction
in spite of my condition
you found me
under heavy tide
a blinding absolution
in warming rays of light
you are my song
