Hopeful Monster's third album, Beautiful Island, is out now on Exit Sign Music!

Hopeful Monster has been the musical brainstorm of Halifax native Jason Ball, now living in Toronto, with an evolving cast of collaborators in both cities, since the year 2000. For more info please visit hopefulmonster.ca

When glitterbugs are waving from the sky

Waves are all around us, everything is rushing by

We're canonized, forgetting where we are

And stones are leaping up towards photomagnetic stars

 

Everything that's scattered will come home

Brand new and unused

All the forces will gather in the free zone

Unmoved and unknown

 

We're joining bodies, casting webs around

Matter's great in difference when light distorts to sound

Because we see them we resist the call

But one day I'll wake up flying skywards — anchor, ship and all

 

Everything that's scattered will come home

Brand new and unused

All the forces will gather in the free zone

Unmoved and unknown
