split your wood, and carry your water
one long day you'll come to atest
all you healin', all of your bleedin'
lay those mighty hands to rest

crush the dirt and bury your heart there
there's holding patterns for a son
all your worth, all of your empathy
will color your hands when you are done

at the gate, you'll be signin' up your name
and your face will fall into the fate
won't you heed your mark
but is it somethin' that you leave
or is it somethin' that you feel x2

burn the cedar, hear the crackle
cuz now just supercedes the past
i'm believin', in the needin'
cuz i have grown old with you

with you, i've sold the dying sun
come the moon, to rest and colors run
when you heed your mark
and is it somethin' that you leave
or is it somethin' that you feel x3

not in charity, not in family
lived together in a world
all my hope, all of my history
i am here for others now

at the gate we'll be signin' up a name
and your face will fall into the fate
when you heed your mark
is it somethin' that you leave
or is it somethin that you feel x2
and when you heed your mark
and if it's somethin' that you leave
or is it somethin' that you feel x5

    General Commentthese lyrics are incredible.

    the lines:
    all my hope, all of my history
    i am here for others now

    just really hit me for some reason.
