Lyrics:
We tell ourselves we will be chosen
If we draw lines we never cross
A silver world where nothing touches
And nothing gets dirty or lost
But the lord is a wolf not a shepherd
There’s no rope for us to hold on
There is only one path we can follow
We don’t go anywhere when we’re gone
Build your towers to the heavens
Nothing made is here to stay
Put up a stone to mark our bones
Until the wind wears it away
When I’m gone give me no coffin
Lay me naked on a hill
Leave my body by its lonesome
Let the vultures have their fill
The years will scrape away my voice
And everything I ever knew
The dead don’t care if they’re forgotten
But the old, they surely do
Build your towers to the heavens
Nothing made is here to stay
Put up a stone to mark our bones
Until the wind wears it away
