lyrics

He went around the world a thousand years ago
There was grey warmth in the atmosphere
Now it's colder than the snow
He has a body in the backseat
And it's waiting for the earth
He can't be bought
He can't be sold
He'd never settle on a worth

And now the buildings topple
From the steeple to the stone
Hardly glancing to the sky
He only knows that things are known
He drags the body through the desert
Settles down beside the bane
Where he went
And where he'll go
It only matters from where he came

Because the sun has set on the paradise he sees
The night sky rules with purity to cure the day's disease
And when the ego dies it will carry with it shame
Nothing's set apart until it gets a name

And now the parchment curls as fire licks across it's brow
The covered wagon braced to bullocks drags it's weight along the dao
He spies the sacrificial platter just beyond a hill
And sets the oxen to a fevered pace that's synchronized to his will

The light shines up and blesses the day
Nothing ever truly goes away
Children match their parents fractaled tones
We lay our bodies down and dream of being less than bones
