Lay down your bricks and rest your tired arms
Wait till the morning brings another start
When the pain is gone
Then your work is done

Hurt takes you away sometimes
It hurts watching the change in your eyes
New hunts in the morning light
Sleep takes you away at night

Lay down your head and rest your tired heart
Wait till the morning brings another start
When the pain is gone
Then your work is done

When the pain is gone
Then your work is done at last

    General CommentI too, took a while to let this track sink in, but now it's my favorite from the album. Spleen United uses lyrics like a wire frame, and the music builds the meaning. Their songs are so subjective...I think the meanings change depending your circumstances...which in a way makes the songs more personal.

    To me, Heat is about caring for someone with a terminal illness. Watching them struggle to stay alive, and then find peace in death.
