They said you died like the mountain
But you were just the silent one
And you move like fire across quicksand
You were the tree uprooted by the winter
Many years ago

Close the blinds
Cut out the lights
And pick you off the floor
Lay you down upon my bed
So you can rest once more

And when the clouds let out the copper
And pennies rained for days
The rock that fortified our castle
Conceded to the waves
And sawed-off chair that gave you posture
Awarded to the floor

Close the blinds
Cut out the lights
And pick you off the floor
Lay you down upon my bed
So you can rest once more

Oh, Ides

I heard you tried to build a structure
To put it all away
And didn't stay to see the ending
It was all too much
And then just let the place consume you
Like an accident

Close the blinds
Cut out the lights
And pick you off the floor
Lay you down upon my bed
So you can rest once more
