lyrics

lyrics by Ethan Nickerson
music by The Mines

On the mountain between love and war,
we watch men break before they bend
In the streets iron walls start to climb,
we watch them rise and fall again
Why do ghosts from the past haunt us still?
And why can’t we escape the lie?
For this hunger that blood cannot fill,
there’s so much more that we deny

People made of dust,
given a breath we can’t repay
Bodies lost to rust,
but given another chance to stay, to stay

In the sweetness of new life we find,
that to create is to be made
In the moments that we can’t define,
we see the life that we betrayed...

People made of dust,
and given a breath we can’t repay,
Bodies lost to rust,
but given another chance to stay
As the dawn appears,
the smoke and the darkness clears away
Underneath the ice,
the pulse of the garden starts to play,
to play, to play, to play

Where the feast won’t end,
let your grace extend, my Lord
I am home to stay.

Where there is no fear,
let the weak draw near, my Lord
I am home to stay.
