Lyrics

Sometimes, the dark is peaceful
The moonlight warms me - cools me
The grass is damp but I cannot feel it

Often, a shroud creeps over
And all take cover - not me
My skin’s alive with the sound of footsteps

Always, when skies move angry
Unblinking open. Staring.
As angels throw their stones into my eyes

It rains on me
It shatters my skin
I cannot close my eyes
Collision brings its own cold fear
Up there - it’s broken

Mostly, this garden keeps me
While straps ignite me - bite me
An anchor with a view of heaven

Sometimes, the fox calls to me
The dew runs through me - soothes me
Swells the cracks that anger dry bones

Rarely, are nights so peaceful
Pray for a clear sky
Star-gazed and moon-mad
Touching fragments, judging fragments

Putting out the stars
Putting out the stars
Putting out the stars
Putting out the stars
Putting out the stars
Putting out

It rains on me
It shatters my skin
I cannot close my eyes
Collision brings its own cold fear
Up there - it’s broken
