lyrics

As if, all that we were
Were only words
That travel round and round
In one another's mouths
Never to be born from the word into the world
Into the sound and the fury
Never to be born into the land of blood and bone
Into the sound and the fury

Write yourself a ledger of all that you've been and done
Sew of it a shift to be worn outdoors in lieu of conversation

As if, all that we were
Were only words
That travel round and round
In one another's mouths
Never to be born from the word into the world
Into the sound and the fury
Never to be born into the land of blood and bone
Into the sound and the fury

Count up all the hours spent counting the hours
Of telling and re-telling of our soul stories
Stories that we need for the telling and re-telling and that we begin to believe

As if, all that we were
Were only words
That travel round and round
In one another's mouths
Never to be born from the word into the world
Into the sound and the fury
Never to be born into the land of blood and bone
Into the sound and the fury
