All the years that I stood rooted and strong
A monument atop the ridge you put me on
But I hear the machines rush in like a tide
And I know there’s no place that I can hide

I should have held my breath and saved a thread of mountain air
I should have known for so long that this day would come

And all that I wanted was a life hand in hand
Where we fill in the spaces the best that we can
But the pain that I’m feeling, you won’t understand
And the limbs that you’ve severed, they will never mend

I should have held my breath and saved a thread of mountain air
I should have known for so long that this day would come
I should have held my breath and saved a thread of mountain air
I should have known for so long that this day would come

So I’ll forget the things that have filled me with pride
I’ll wander through dreams that have all but died
I’ll look to the sky, but it’s not enough
The sun’s buried now under towers of lust
They have burned us alive
They have burned us alive
They have burned us alive
They have burned us alive

I should have held my breath and saved a thread of mountain air
I should have known for so long that this day would come
I should have held my breath and saved a thread of mountain air
They have burned us alive
They have burned us alive
