  • Lyrics: The Cycle © 2008 Jayme Kelly Curtis Life abounds in the microscope The unknown fills the telescope I don't know where the cycle begins But I know where it ends It stops here It stops here It stops here When I was young there was a place I could go That seemed to be created just for me You caved in, my world started to spin Like a centrifuge and pinned, I was not free It stops here It stops here It stops here Stretching back and back and back Through tin type photographs The battlefield is mirrored in the eyes Of my mother's father's mother And all the sons and daughters Who bear the wounds endured without surprise It stops here It stops here It stops here Cells collide, split and divide A chain is formed, it holds us all our lives I have seen how love can die But I believe that it will live again Starting here Starting here Starting here
