lyrics

In the early days
We found the proof
Ten thousand years
Ten billion truths

And human beings
We’ve got so much more
We’ve got animal parts
With hearts that soar
And hearts that rage
In the dead of night
We’ve got so many ways
To describe the light

When something pulls
At your barest soul
And you leave it behind
Well it leaves a hole

Fill it with the pieces that you brought with you long ago
Dig it like a tunnel to the tender part of your soul

And one of these days
We might understand
That the things we’ve done
Have stayed on our hands

And I’ll sit in the rain
Feeling every drop
I can’t stay the same
Though I tried to stop

If your mind forgets
All the things it knows
Something must hang on
You’ll fill the holes

Fill it with the pieces that you brought with you long ago
Dig it like a tunnel to the tender part of your soul
