Everything Everything The Peaks Lyrics

Last updated: 01/22/2013 05:17:47 AM

So they came one by one,
There was never any warning,
Bled out the stuck pig fields like it was gonna last, long,
And I saw the whole rise,
I saw the whole thing fall, down,
And all flesh spun, a lattice of it reaching out

And I’m left holding my head, looking down at every grave,
And all millennia pass just a flicker in a wave,
And I’ve seen more villages burn than animals born,
I’ve seen more towers come down than children grow up

Cross the peaks, cross the marsh
Cross your fingers for the last time,
And pass out the blame to someone,
And never stepping up, son!
Nobody’s asking; “Why is your head bent down? So?”
There’s trillions lost, I’m dreaming of a different time

And I’m left holding my head, looking down at every grave,
And all millennia pass just a flicker in a wave,
And I’ve seen more villages burn than animals born,
I’ve seen more towers come down than children grow up

And I’ve seen biomass swarm, back and forth across the globe
They try all manner of things just to keep it all afloat,
And I’ve seen more criminals hung than innocents walk,
I’ve seen more horrors made real than dreamers wake up

Come now, decider, sit down, beside me,
Tell me my world is gone.
