saving grace - signs of passing, released february 2003


you didn't need a written word
to see it breaking down
they never circled on these fields
so they burned them to the ground
they do dishonor to the dumb earth in their fury
refineries flare bright in a gunmetal sky
but i wanted to believe that the last one comes home

through a steel and concrete maze
dark waters churn
a million suns to see the day
when the stone begins to turn
there is no rest, there is no peace
relentless is the world, the world that we designed
but i wanted to believe that the last one comes home

saving grace
it's getting too dark to see
and where is this place
that we thought we would see?

the proudest were taken in the tide
and there's no way to learn
in the smoke we made today
my eyes burn
a million suns to see the day
when the stone begins to turn
but i know, i know that the last one comes home

saving grace
it's getting too dark to see
and where is this place
that we thought we would see?

saving grace
it's getting too dark to see
and where is this place?
