about

The lament of the conquered.

lyrics

I was mad at the megalith for wasting all of our time
the men who came and taught us this were brutal and they stayed here
leaving the talisman on my windowsill frustrated and neglected
as we long for the time that we were young and the city was ours
old days
stones hold too firmly for these things and for me
calculations ignoring God’s will
however brief my time may be, I will not sink to reduce
I will not succumb to this temptation to simplify
calmly holding my heart for this
feel like I could wait for this
my father, he warned me of these things before me
he said there would come a day when the foam would break from the sea
however brief your time may be, you should not sink to reduce
you will not succumb to this temptation to simplify
calmly holding my heart for this
feel like I could wait for this
it doesn’t have to be so obvious
I’m patient
stones hold too firmly for these things and for me
