lyrics

Call upon the holy people to oversee,
Overseas there’s a war raging, but that just won’t compete,
With the war raging, there’s a war raging, in the lids of our eyes.

We are much older now then we were when we were born,
Take all the knowledge acquired and toss it out to the storm,
There’s a storm raging, a storm raging in the seams of our skin.

Where do you keep your deepest of hearts?
On the strangest of nights, the sun sets in your eyes.
Are you rolling in the deep when the coast becomes clear?
I saw your face, dear, emerging from the fog.

Bury your past in corner plot there in your garden green,
Water, then watch all your misdeeds and misdoings turn to seed,
Then rise up, watch them rise up, and feed you and yours.

Where do you keep your deepest of hearts?
on the strangest of nights, the sun sets in your eyes.
Are you rolling in the deep when the coast becomes clear?
I saw your face, dear, emerging from the fog.

Take all your tiny, tiny things,
Tie them oh tie them with a tiny string,
Ride them, ride them on your tiny bicycle,
And then try as you might to leave them all behind.
