Hole in the Sun

lyrics

blast to dust
the pale wings of prayer
lay this body down
limbs bound
eyes sealed tight
lay this body down

little bird
little bird
where have you gone?
i flew home through a hole in the sun

play my vertebrae like a lyre
notes are going to rise like stars
through the concrete and smoke and barbed wire
notes are going to rise like stars

little bird
little bird
where have you gone?
i flew home through a hole in the sun

dream the last beast you'll dream of
and fly through her eyes
lay this body down
hold me tight as i let go of my eyes
lay this body down

little bird
little bird
where have you gone?
i flew home through a hole in the sun
