Tired eyes cast their gaze too far away
To recognize the patterns that beget the fall
When darkness comes, despite the power of the sun
Holy father, can you save, yet own the hand that holds the gun

I can see the balance that has been outweighed
By apathy, the animals won't guard the farm
Crumbling post and beam and toxic paint
Once these walls are set to burn, the memory is all that can be saved

Here we lay upon a bed of nails that pierce our skin
And celebrate our loss with every drop we give
Up until it's all gone

Taming science, we've propelled ourselves into a state of bliss
Afraid of silence, we've excelled at narrowing our consciousness
Petrified sediment, settling for tacit worth
Dammed, will we turn to cement or dare decide to walk the earth

Here we lay upon a bed of nails that pierce our skin
And celebrate our loss with every drop we give
Up until it's all gone

The iron that shackles our hands
Mined from the blood of our fathers
Weathered and cracked by grit and sand
Still holds the shape of our desire
