come on set fire to your house
come light a match in your hearts
leave your gold and jewels in the sand
they'll give you only broken necks and hands
come let us run through the night

you were a fleet stuck in nowhere, sailing in the ice
I was a coal train out of control
so now we're crashing through this violent land
and not a million ropes could hold us back
come line our road with your lights

now I want to see you dragging your bones across mountain tops
the highest hills, the longest drop
in the water
in the water

bodies are blasted clean with air
gravity smiles and pulls us near
as we’re falling
as we’re falling

just seconds away from age-old depths
unified, exchanging breath
in the water
in the water

what is the word that says the unspoken?
what is a drop when out of the ocean?
come on cautious
come out of nowhere

our bodies can not be controlled
all returns to where it flows
in the water
in the water


from Hymns from the Blazing Flesh, released October 12, 2011
