LYRICS

FIRE PART I

A fire will burn it down
Flames will burn it clean
Build your house up from the ground
We will raise the beams

It’s been years since we’ve seen you
Decades, so it seems
You’ve not been forgotten
You’ve been in our dreams

THE DUST WE RAISE

Oh, the dust we raise
Oh, the mess we made
But we keep on moving anyway

Oh, the times we had
They weren’t all bad
But we keep on moving anyway

Don’t say a word
We got nothing to talk about
Don’t say a word
Don’t say a word

Oh, the history
Life’s sweet mystery
But we keep on moving anyway

Oh, the wars we wage
But the roads get paved
And we keep on moving anyway

Don’t say a word
We got nothing to talk about, you know we don’t
Don’t say a word
Don’t say a word

Pyramid Wave

PYRAMID WAVE

The wind from the bay
It blew her away
And the snow fell to the ground

And then from a cave
Came the Pyramid Wave
And the stones moved without a sound
From below
It reached up and swallowed her whole

She said, "Don’t say I love you
Unless it’s true
Unless you do"

There was ice in the fields
And the cold never yields
And the snow falls from the sky

The men on the lake
Were alert and awake
But they could not see in the dark

But they tried
There were just too many places to hide

She said, "Don’t say I love you
Unless it’s true
Unless you do"

Empire Smalls Tree of Strife

WE WILL NOT RETURN

In the twilight, after the fire fight
We will not return

In the morning, after the dawning
We will not return

Don’t lose yourself along the way x2

In the moonlight, after the space flight
We will not return

In the evening, after the greiving
We will not return

Don’t lose yourself along the way x2

CHANGE (BUT NOT TODAY)

Change but not today lord, I’ll change but not today
Love but not today, lord, I’ll love but not today

The sun destroys with daylight after the moon has held me tight
And the only peace that I can find is when I lay down at night lord, when I lay down at night

Change but not today lord, I’ll change but not today
Forgive but not today lord, I’ll forgive but not today

The wind whips my back as I climb upon this stone
And the only silence I abide is when I’m traveling alone, lord
When I’m traveling alone

Change but not today lord, I’ll change but not today
Learn but not today, lord, I’ll learn but not today

The rain beats my skin as I walk upon this shore
And the only thing that I have learned
Is I can’t take it anymore, lord, I can’t take it anymore

Change but not today lord, I’ll change but not today
Give up but not today, lord, I’ll give in but not today

Do you even listen to a single word I say?
Well, I’ll make you a deal, lord, I’ll change but not today
I’ll change but not today
