You know I’m almost sure I saw them creep up through the floor
with their hands around a waist that had graced my doors
but it was you and me and nothing more

A better fare for the plate and to sate your bones
Sure to share, sure to share but you can make it known
they’ve all but swallowed everything they own

You’re here to claim a parting gift
a waste to leave with what you started with
There’s little that a weight will shift
in anything your arms can lift

Cut your teeth and you’re a flag born waving
Dare to speak, but I’m a breath worth saving

If there’s a plan, then it's lost on me
and they took a hand that they meant to keep
What a pair and proud they’ll be,
to hold riches far as eyes, eyes can see
Riches far as eyes can see

Gave the gods quite a scare, and now they’ll spare no stone
‘til they cast off the glare from your waking throne
and leave a shadow fallen where it shone

An old friend came to call, and now we bear his grin
And it’s never going to fall-- you see, he’s always been
so patient waiting for the lights to dim
