The community is sick
(Please believe)
And the community is blind
(In labor and hope)
Yell
(And joy)

And it's colder than Poland
('Cause like a little boy)
And the sun is not shining
(I have destroyed)
Here
(Hope and joy)

And we're tangled in the shit
(And lately I dream about)
Of each other's ruined
(Angels with molotovs)
Affairs

Half of us are faking
(And nightly they fist me)
And the other half is tired
(Wrists like tender trucks)
And scared

And these hands could've moved mountains
These hands could've moved mountains...

    General Commentwonderful stuff. i saw them live last month, and i was not expecting that this one but they did and it was ten times better - which hard to achieve since the record is breathtaking by itself.

    General CommentFor me this song is about how wasteful and futile we are and how strong we can be if we really believe in something...

    General Commenti think this is about somebody who is disappointed with herself or himself, he or she had the potential to do beautiful things and to accomplish something for good but instead she or he destroyed everything and the guilt is eating him or her

    General CommentAmazing...
    I've heard A Silver Mt. Zion for the first time almost a week ago and i started with this song...
    since then i bought the entire 5 albums and i can't stop listening!
    they're like a child discovering music for the first time...really amazing...
    and this one expresses the feelings of every underachiever as of what he/she could have done if had the chance but didn't...
    the idea of "what i would've done" is hypnotizing by it self!..
    if i had the opportunity?...who knows?
    if i could?..maybe anything!
