"Burial" as written by Magnus Lidehall, Salem Al Fakir and Seinabo Sey....
Flowers cross the sea
Memories aren't what they used to be
Something in the breeze
High and low, always incomplete
Fire burns my back
They stare, I don't know how to react
Try smiling for them to see
That I'm happy, we're free

I hear you speak to me, as you spoke to me
Saying come down let it be
Grains of sand we'll never be
Strong enough to make me leave
I hear you speak to me as you spoke to me
Saying come down let it be
Grains of sand we'll never be
Strong enough to make me leave

Stone rise, curtain falls
I am sure that you've seen it all
Christ, you're in for harmony
Clouds they turn for you call for me
Fire burns my back
I'm ashamed I ever thought you were mine
Try smiling for them to see
That I'm happy that we're free

I hear you speak to me, as you spoke to me
Saying come down let it be
Grains of sand we'll never be
Strong enough to make me leave
I hear you speak to me as you spoke to me
Saying come down let it be
Grains of sand we'll never be
Strong enough to make me leave

They speak of grace
They speak of a better place
They speak of kingdoms
Kingdoms and how they come
They speak of freedom
Freedom and marching drums
Freedom and marching drums
Freedom and marching drums

When I miss you I hear you speak to me, as you spoke to me
Saying come down let it be
Grains of sand we'll never be
Strong enough to make me leave
I hear you speak to me, as you spoke to me
Saying come down let it be
Grains of sand we'll never be
Strong enough to make me leave
I hear you speak to me, as you spoke to me
Saying come down let it be
Grains of sand we'll never be
Strong enough to make them leave
Strong enough to make them leave, me
