lyrics

hold fast to your eyes, my brother, dear brother
for eyes are such wandering fools
one hand on my name, cover fear cover shame
the other makes jokes of its rules

and sister, my god, keep your blouse to your chest
'cause darling, we're wolves in the night
truth is a white tooth all dripping bright red
so don't wait to up and take flight

this is the sky
and far above your broken limbs and rainclouds
there's light, and it does shine
this is life
and it is yours, and you will find there's more
than meets the eye
and that's alright
that's just fine

they come with the tide, yes, they live and they die
they're sand in your palms so hold tight
but i've had this axe on the wall in the shed
and i've used it to cut all my ties

find me a train on its way down south
and hold my head by the fire
love is a stain and i'm washing it out
but good god, my arms get so tired

we are hands and feet
we kick and scream
we're pillars made of salt
we're hopeless starts
and broken parts
but the sun still shines on us all

this is the sky
and far above your broken limbs and rainclouds
there's light, and it does shine
this is life
and it is yours, and you will find there's more
than meets the eye
and that's alright
that's just fine
