Heavy on the heart
One you can't harden
Strife is the blood inside her

Easy on the mind
Open the window
Listen
Listen to the sound she makes

Born to a soldier
Minds full of smoke
Heroin and rape
And TV
It hangs on her now
And then she responds to
The promise of some place
She'll feel better
She'll feel better

She falls like a sparrow
'neath the eyes of her saviour
Alone, and hungry, and flies
She remembers the warmth
Of the place in the mountains
Of the river and laughter

She sings, "Son, won't you take me in?
Babe, won't you rescue me now?
Why won't you undo this hurt?
I'm flickering out.

Son, won't you take me in?
Babe, won't you rescue me now?
Why won't you undo this hurt?
I'm flickering out."
