lyrics

I STILL PRAY

breath into silence all the things
i don't have the strength to say
carried in the folds of existence keep walking
but I can't help remembering

my prayers were not enough to pull you out
from the ground where we laid you down
and a thought of it is too many for this finite mind

arms were too heavy to lift an empty burden
but we tried
and tried not to find
the essence of hope that would carry us while remembering

our prayers were not enough to pull you out
from the ground where we laid you down
and if given strength i would rip stars from sky
just to destroy something else

you said seeds can move mountains
so how is it we are left beholding bereft
now our hope's been corrected
but it doesn't feel like i thought it would

and I'm much too practical i confess
but I've gotta do something before this heart splits my chest
from remembering

my prayers were not enough to pull you out
from the ground where we laid you down
and this present space is crushing me in your absence
