When day dawned, the tempest passed away
And the warm sun shone out
I was caught in a sunbeam that dried my eyes closed
I'll show you what it means to come home alive
'cause I've seen the curtain fall one too many times

And it's my fault

Don't let the weight
Shatter your shoulders
Just lay it down
Before you forget how

When God spoke, the field was dry as day
She felt her cold hands meet
I was lost in the wood grain 'til I heard her call my name
We held a funeral for the moths we'd killed
Then set to work again on the ones that lived

At least we knew

Don't let the weight
Shatter your shoulders
Just lay it down
Before you forget how

Have you been kneeling here long?
Shedding your youth
Teaching yourself not to argue
You're caught in a shroud
you shouldn't have found
Those monologues spoiled your innocence

I swept up all your tiny fragments
And spun you into thread
And dyed you gold
But you never kept me warm enough
To make it through a single night
So I cut you to parts
And sold you as scarves
So you could go on after I was gone
