lyrics

AFTER THE FLOOD

No more priceless words
No more things you heard
It's not enough to listen
Thinking of our hearts we'll miss them

No more careless laughter
Drums beat ever faster
Think we're in some grand position
We'll be left with casts and stitches

Before the Flood (there was nothing)
everything seemed dead
Thicker than blood (now we're standing)
knee deep in red

No more things to buy
I saw your smile behind a sigh
Bury some long forgotten bones
We fight with love and sticks and poems

Before the Flood (we were nothing)
We were okay
But now we're blood (brothers and sisters)
The sky is gold and gray above

Ooh I can't see a willow tree that used to be up
by the great divide between us
What compares to water anyway?
