lyrics

I drank the sky tonight
And tasted what it hides
I felt the heart inside
And it beats for you and I
It said:
You're not your face
You're not your failures
You are not your sheltered shame
What will become of this
Potent gift you hold?

Manifest reality you're sold
Because it's all that you know.
You hide the secrets from yourself,
You will hide the truth from yourself.
It’s a shadow for us all.

Don't wear the weight of their wounds
On your fragile shoulders.
They rise just to curse
Don't wear the weight of their wounds
On your fragile shoulders
They stand just to fall

It seems this apparition has a name.
One that screams so loudly
Through the flame.
This silence speaks a curse of withering
Enough to keep us tethered to the pain.

Light shines so brightly
My eyes cannot see.
My hands reach so high
My feet flee the earth.

Don't wear the weight of their wounds
On your fragile shoulders.
They rise just to curse
Don't wear the weight of their wounds
On your fragile shoulders
They stand just to fall

But still we always fade
Swallowed up by the fog.
A signal struggling through the haze.
Searching for some source of light
Where shadows are exposed
For what they are

Don’t bare their wounds
On your fragile shoulders.
What will become of this potent
gift that you hold?
Don’t bare their wounds
On your fragile shoulders.
What will become of this potent
gift that you hold?
