lyrics

A torch to burn and put out with a hand
and never even blink
It wouldn't mean a thing or be seen

Collected feathers, a last ditch effort to cross the river that you made

But your arms were wet, they wouldn't stay
and every feather fell away and left you on the ground
to wait another day

We found you there, under the leaves just like you said
with your shoes beside the water waiting for the end to end
When you stood up, saw faces floating in the dark
but you can't see much past your hands
and couldn't reach out past your arms
You couldn't wait
when you climbed out to see a day and all it promised
you found it haunted and such a waste

We shoved the trees into our tiny bags and carried them
to some safe place
where we could stand and watch the world and not be seen,
so we could wait
for all of it to be erased and turned to dust, and start again
And climb out from our hiding place and live again, and live again
