lyrics

Here in the dark where I was born,
I followed the moon around the curve of the earth,
Encountering nations as they mourn,
All begging to finally see the dawn giving birth.

Futures are burning in the streets,
Smoke has been pouring in the skies for so long,
Devouring everything it eats,
The flames have been feeding on the sickness and the wrong,

And nobody knows who made the fires,
But we all stayed here long enough to watch ‘em grow
Wiping the ashes from our eyes,
We wake to a world the peels the life, from the soul

There’s something I can’t see,
I think it’s bigger than me,
I think it’s way too big to show,
Still my biggest fear, is…
How much I love it here,
I think I’m too afraid to go…

Picking the pieces off the ground,
Searching the streets to find a place that still stands,
Faces are aging all around,
People are trying to wipe the blood off their hands,

Still nobody knows who made the fires,
But we stood around here long enough to watch ‘em grow,
What if the rain could finally fall,
And even the least becomes a priest to heal the whole.

There’s something I can’t see,
I think it’s bigger than me,
I think it’s way too big to show,
Still my biggest fear, is…
How much I love it here,
I think I’m too afraid to go…

Cause this is not my home,
But still it’s all I’ve known,
Sometimes it’s all I think I know.
I swear a man can change,
Cause there is something strange,
That I can feel beneath my soul…
