Boreal was basically written all because of one riff Stephen started playing that he really liked. After He brought it to Drew, they almost completely changed the song. Haha. After that, everything else came together really easily. Not only did this track almost write itself, it was one of the last tracks they wrote for the album and probably one of the first songs that finally hit the sound they wanted Celestial Vernacular to be.

Boreal picks up where Constellations! leaves us off - sorting through the details of feeling really lost.


Helpless I watch my life unravel
Drifting endlessly away
This is how it all begins
This is how we start to end

Capture now the grace in balance
Swirling motion takes me in
Oh God, I can't stop in this silence
This pulled thread can't be restitched

Reckless I chose the path less travelled
Soon found it dwindling away
I cannot remember where I've been
If I could only try again

I vaguely recall the place I started
Oh how I did not know my way
Unforseen I took this gamble
What course of action led me astray?

I can't believe that I have fallen
Off the edge of the world, a place uncharted

At the fall
Is this where I'm meant to be
Wake me up
God I pray it's just a dream
I am lost
Helplessly beneath the trees
After all
You were just a memory
