lyrics

PART 1

You held out your struggle at arm's length
Scared of it baring its teeth
You promised yourself you'd stay vigilant
A weary watch with no hope of relief

Running on the spot
With your eyes bloodshot
Doing what you always did
And getting what you always got

I can't correct what you've done
Just accept what you've done
For that rocky road led us both here
And I'd tell you you don't need to live in fear
But I know it would fall on deaf ears

And in the darkest dark
The slightest spark
Makes the starkest mark
So as you were
As you were
Became as I am

A slave to the craving with insatiable tastes
But somehow, still you saved face
On a road through Hell lined
With good intentions laid to waste
Still you healed at a glacial pace
And learned what it means to be brave
Still I'm learning what it means to be brave...

I can't correct what you've done
Just accept what you've done
For that rocky road led us both here
And I'd tell you you don't need to live in fear
But I know it would fall on deaf ears

And in the darkest dark
The slightest spark
Makes the starkest mark
So as you were
As you were
Became as I am

PART 2

So don't think you need to change
'Cause you're gonna change anyway
And the future
None can see
And I'm learning how to love you
And therefore love me
But I can't be forever tethered
To the ghosts of memory...

PART 3

Till the soil, tend the Earth
Mend your heart and wear your worth
Be a friend, lend a hand
Just as soon as you can
No time to waste, to save face
Just be broken, cracked on open
Softly spoken, in whispers woken
The steady swell of the endless ocean...
My darling...

Till the soil, tend the Earth
Mend your heart and wear your worth
Be a friend, lend a hand
Just as soon as you can
No time to waste, to save face
Just be broken, cracked on open
Softly spoken, in whispers woken
The steady swell of the endless ocean...
