lyrics

What’s something that you’ve always known was true?
The humour of a number or the music of the spheres,
stories told by open spaces that last for years
I’ll tell the world

What you think you are only goes so far
Someone devout with someone to keep safe stands up and utters perjury and the unbeliever kneels and bows his head the night before surgery
I’ll tell the world

Would you want to hide so well nobody could find you?
Could you go on, knowing the worst was behind you?

The ashes of a monster find friends amid the dust
like the grip of the hand of a child who’s never known anything but trust
like the passing of an aeon trades riddles with the tide
like atoms say “I love you” by committing suicide
I’ll tell the world
