It was a false sense of security
It was a hard line not to take
But in the face certain mutiny
It was an easy thing to say

Keep placing bandages on our severed limbs
These dams will break
Drown out the sounds of promises

Safe for now you rest easy
You are safe for now
Spread your seeds on the fields of our future affair with fertile ground
We have reasons to expect this temporary fix
To outlive all our kids
So rest easy
Because you are safe for now

And for these self-inflicted injuries
Every one of us will wear
All the scars of our lost century
Through another century of repair

We will lock our doors
From this day forward
Surely things have changed
In my neighborhood

Safe for now you rest easy
You are safe for now
Spread your seeds on the fields of our future affair with fertile ground
We have reasons to expect this temporary fix
To outlive all our kids
So rest easy
Because you are safe for now

I put my ears to the floor as these board crack and splinter
Spread and make room for what's bubbling below
I consider my part in these walls that have risen
To protect us from things that were ours to control

We always come back
We always return
And we reunite
With our broken worlds

Too soon we are to forgive
And too soon to forget
Until it shoves you in a corner
And swings and connects

Safe for now you rest easy
You are safe for now
Spread your seeds on the fields of our future affair with fertile ground
We have reasons to expect this temporary fix
To outlive all our kids
So rest easy

We have reasons to expect
Temporary fix
Outlive all our kids
So rest easy
Because you are safe for now
