lyrics

Salt The Earth


No stone to be placed on stone
Tear the skin clean off the bones
Leave a place where nothing grows
Never light in these shadows

The heart is a desolate place
Where ghosts roam in the haze
A thousand feet dragging through the snow
The wind is a lonely song of woe



Lick the wounds, dry your tears
Salt the earth
Cut the cord, close the door
Salt the earth



Clear the eyes for all things lost
Clear the heart of the biting frost
Clear the mind for nothing at all
All that rises must eventually fall

Burn the ground you walk upon
Drain the wells, all water’s gone
Curse the sky and curse the rain
Curse the land to be a desert plain



Lick the wounds, dry your tears
Salt the earth
Cut the cord, close the door
Salt the earth



Salt the earth so nothing grows
Salt the earth and leave it to the crows
Salt the earth let everybody know
Never light in these shadows
Never light in these shadows
