I was made of wood
But somehow I'm still here
I lay in the mud
And watched the world disappear
But all that I could do
Is look for you my only love
I was on my own
when I saw the clouds grow
He had wanted blood
But we had none to spill
Then the clouds came down
Making rain sounds
I dug myself a whole
And watched the waters grow
But all that I could do
Was wait for you my only love
There was something in the dirt
That wriggled with the worms
And it burrowed in my skin
Just like our sins
So I couldn't get away
To save you that day
And so you fell apart
Corroded by the salt
And all that I could do
Was pray for you my only love
To a vengeful god
So I lay in the trees
And watched new creatures breath
Their skin was flushed and red
Their eyes soft and wet
But no matter what they do
They'll hold nothing to you my only love
Was this sacrifice enough?
And there was something in the dirt
That wriggled with the worms
And it burrowed in my skin
Just like our sins
So I couldn't get away
To save you that day
And though you fall apart
You're still all I want my only love
My only love
I was made of wood
But somehow I'm still here
I lay in the mud
And watched you disappear
