Sorrow is deep and it's wide
Running over life like water on the windows
Grandpa's off on a concrete slab
Everywhere the wind blows

There's a thousand words to say
You can't capture 'fore they run away, and

Somethin's shuddering sweetly
'Neath the sound of neon graffiti
Somethin's shuddering sweetly
'Neath the sound of neon graffiti

If I could see you tonight,
I wouldn't get healed, and my heart would still rattle
It ain't made outta steel
It just knows better than to lose what matters

There's a thousand prayers to pray
Only one says what needs to be said, and


There's still impossible loads / bringin' down the back of every fisher of men
With water laid at his toes / he's still gettin' thirsty again and again

With every separate step,
Freedom is lonely, and the taste is bitter
But it ain't second-guessed
Abel raise no Cain, Mama raise no quitters

There's a thousand steps to take
Stumble & fall - make it your own way, and
