I've stood before this image of you
In a church that they condemned before they knew

With that illusion I wish I could hold
A rosette we drenched in meaning and then sold

Now you're wearing out from within
While the pastel shades of martyrdom are creeping through your skin

I think it's all we know
A seed that does not grow
Could be it just got got buried in the snow

But that's no way to live
With nothing left to give
Just reading from a script

Where was that truce we'd made with the sea
When all seven hills of Rome dared to conspire against our feet?

To all your antique gods, take all the tolls you want
The other side of this bridge is all we've got

But in case we don't get far
Or never even start
I've been praying for your heart
Though i don't know who you are

We all got left there underground
(just to age our way out)
And I pulled a thread I should have left
(I tangled up the answers)
Set out in stone what I have known
(I was still uncertain)
You understood, I wish I could
