lyrics

lyrics by Ethan Nickerson
music by The Mines

There is a stone
It sits like a treasure in a field
Its power alone
Can balance the world, and keep it healed
I thought that I’d find my life
Perched atop a slippery slope,
But here on the ground, my eyes,
They behold a gyroscope

And I don’t want ‘nothing more than to live on,
But what is that living for with all this wrong?
I must be out of my mind to put all my faith in you,
But no brick that I find can do what this stone can do
There is a stone

There is a way
There is a way before us all,
And most of my day
Is spent on the ground, learning to crawl,
But I’ve got a pulse again,
And I am not without hope
I fell on the stone, I broke in,
And now I’m a gyroscope

Chorus

And when I’m tired, it’s in my face, you see it
My heart in chains, and I need to free it
Another time, another place, we’ll flee it
We have to fight, we’ll alight, alight, alight...

There is a stone
There is a stone
There is a stone
There is a stone
