lyrics

You raised your army from dust
to defend the city in your heart
armed with amulets and sage
you lost form
and moved like fire.
For your accolade
I will not wait to be delivered
to a state of grace
I will not wait for redemption to fall
but take your vow to live simply
to throw blizzards back to the sky
resuscitate the trees
re-attach the leaves
as they fall

Under the armor of a saint
comes your enemy
under the flag of a friend.
On a quest to touch his torch to your fear
He only illuminates

What makes you unbreakable
does not give joy unspeakable
you must raise an army up
with a broken harp
to defend the city in your heart
wide-eyed dove
grow the talons of a hawk.

The salt of the sea must be carried
like a sadness in your heart
a melancholy your mind can't reach
that keeps you as thin as spring
and heavy as fall
In the one star city nights of woe
where the machines echo
I feel the rivers of Earth
running through my veins
I have many sides
Invincible, rapid and cold.

Under the armor of a saint
comes your enemy
under the flag of a friend.
On a quest to touch his torch to your fear
He only illuminates
What makes you unbreakable
does not give joy unspeakable
you must raise an army up
with a broken harp
to defend the city in your heart
wide-eyed dove
grow the talons of a hawk.
