lyrics

past participles; i've been jaded and i have shaded
so long & so far. now i am changing, without waiting.

i am not afraid of anything anymore

oh, kingdom come down on me, i hear your kingdom comes for free

but the walk costs everything. i am listening
for you, so willingly, you are whispering.
and i, ungrateful still, with no worries, in no hurry,
my hands full every year, never burning, cold or yearning.

will i be so ashamed of everything evermore?

oh, kingdom come down on me, i hear your kingdom comes for free

so shoot all your flares up over-top the burning sea,
i'm floating face up on the surface with the block between my teeth.
i took the fight that i was given & lashed it right out from my bones.
the waves slam up against my wounds, your fingers curling around my soul...

i can almost hear you...
