lyrics

tracing skylines on my skin
mapping meaning on a whim
dark as day and light as sin
you find your freedom from within
while cameras flash and bullets sing

tracing faces in the clouds
the lion made you laugh out loud
you saw a devil, I saw a saint
I cried love and you cried hate
in the final moment I sing your praise

may you be soft enough to slip through fingers
strong enough to carve through stone
and when you stand for something
may you never stand alone

climbing shade trees in the sun
building crosses just for fun
you never knew my youngest son
you never gave him time to run
but when you call me I will come

waiting patiently to fall
three eyes dry and standing tall
press my lips against the wall
visions blur and angels call
and if I see the light I'll crawl

you may be soft enough to slip through fingers
strong enough to carve through stone
but when you stand for something
you will always fall alone

time moves fast and life moves slow
lazy river ebbs and flows
but when you start to feel alone
resting on your rusted throne
take my hand and I'll guide you home

and we'll be soft enough to slip through fingers
strong enough to carve through stone
and when we stand for something
we will never stand alone
