Hey, you rolling roar
I am alone and throwing stones into the windows
Hey, you ancient door
I am a bone, buried alone beneath the willows
And I'll awake the dawn
We can sing our songs among the strong
And you can chase the salt right back into the sea's sun-thirsty throng
But you'll be dragged along

Hey, you longest road
I am a festival of colors and of dust
Hey, you easy load
I'll climb down the holy mountain if you say I must
And we are bones
I was told by men on iron thrones
So then I tallied what I owned
And found that everybody comes and goes alone
So everything you say is copper
Everything you feel is light from stones
'Cause I was told by men on iron thrones that we are bones
