lyrics

“Black Earth”

When all is done
We’ll commemorate you.
It was a sound device, although brutally unkind
And when we couldn’t take anymore
You took us for miles
But the clouds are getting closer
All the way to Black Earth
And the clouds are getting closer
And you’re running out of time.

Its nothing we didn’t plan for
It’s our tenacious nature
What makes us great is in the moments
It’s not the mellow drama
It’s not the failed approach
What brings us down is the hubris

The subtle aches, The mental breaks
It all adds up for goodness sake
Disaster years that you make
The cryptic signs become your fate
This place you know so well
In his image you built this hell
The empty spaces that you fill
A frightened child that you kill

Are we getting warmer?
Or did these places come to haunt you in life
And when we need you the most
You cast us aside

Four chances to get things right
Three times the failing kind
Twice now we sold our lies
One hero who had to died

Its nothing we didn’t plan for
It’s our tenacious nature
What makes us great is in the moments
It’s not the melodrama
It’s not the failed approach
What brings us down is the hubris
