lyrics

Wade through the water
Sift down to the bottom
Some beggar with a pale visage
Forging with the sediment

Never have I met
Another so fearless
Nostalgia’s like a poison
And you lick the vile clean

All streams are one
We bleed the same

But I won’t let you
Get the best of me
Embrace the silence
That comes before a riot

You would do well
To remember this
Fall on broken knees
The violence of memory

Because this pain is transient
It ebbs and flows, dies and glows
Half an hour of salvation
Counting shapes in the basement

Just let the music play
On and on and on and on

But I won’t let you
Get the best of me
Embrace the silence
That comes before a riot
Walls wear the diagrams
That lead to the promised land

What was it that you found there
Cast off into the shadows
They never spoke a word to you
But somehow it didn’t matter
Watching my letters all wash away
Onto the shores of forbidden islands
I’ve found grace in the weakest hands
And I’ve sewn shut my own eyelids

I’ve seen everything
There is to see in you

But I won’t let you
Get the best of me
Embrace the silence
That comes before a riot

The pin dropped
