"Ruins" as written by and Matthew Morris Pond....
were you just being funny
when you cut down my tree
i was hanging my hat there
on a bent knee
were you just being clever
there's so much i don't know
i'll be tracing my outline
in the sunshine
i got hit with the handle
when you split through my coat
now i'm searching through empty pockets,
they fill me up with your ghost
i'll make a ladder
i'll climb these words here
take it higher
oh have mercy
were you just being funny
when you put me to sleep
i was staring the sky down
deep in the dark leaves
i'll make a ladder
i'll climb these words here
to take it higher
oh have mercy
if it matters
i'll knock the dust off
i'll clean my curses
oh have mercy
you make and break me
a million pieces
le'em shine, let 'em shine
you push, you tear the walls down
ruins in the starry skies
you make and break me
a million pieces
let 'em shine, let 'em shine
you push, you tear the walls down
ruins under starry skies
now we're disappearing
strictly speaking the vague lines of ghosts
you were talking bout heaven
all i see is unknown
through clouds surrendering reason
the emptiness keeps us afloat
you were talking bout heaven
all i see is unknown

    General Commenti see it as a situation between two people... something like, she has an idea of how things should be, both in a relationship and otherwise. she is sure of things, and sees reason in them. and he doesn't know anything at all. that's not a bad thing, though. conviction limits possibility.
