Words That Made Me Think
09/12/12 at 08:54 AM by tortags
This is a Song by a Talk Muisc Band Called "Listener." This Band is Very Different From Anything I've Every Listened to, and It's... Amazing; It Made Me Want to ReThink Some Things. The Song is Called "Wooden Heart", and its Lyrics and Link are as Follows:

http://listener.bandcamp.com/album/wooden-heart

"Weíre all born to broken people on their most honest day of living
and since that first breath... Weíll need grace that weíve never given
I've been haunted by standard red devils and white ghosts
and it's not only when these eyes are closed
these lies are ropes that I tie down in my stomach,
but they hold this ship together tossed like leaves in this weather
and my dreams are sails that I point towards my true north,
stretched thin over my rib bones, and pray that it gets better
but it wonít wonít, at least I donít believe it will...
so I've built a wooden heart inside this iron ship,
to sail these blood red seas and find your coasts.
donít let these waves wash away your hopes
this war-ship is sinking, and I still believe in anchors
pulling fist fulls of rotten wood from my heart, I still believe in saviors
but I know that we are all made out of shipwrecks, every single board
washed and bound like crooked teeth on these rocky shores
so come on and letís wash each other with tears of joy and tears of grief
and fold our lives like crashing waves and run up on this beach
come on and sew us together, tattered rags stained forever
we only have what we remember

I am the barely living son of a woman and man who barely made it
but weíre making it taped together on borrowed crutches and new starts
we all have the same holes in our hearts...
everything falls apart at the exact same time
that it all comes together perfectly for the next step
but my fear is this prison... that I keep locked below the main deck
I keep a key under my pillow, itís quiet and itís hidden
and my hopes are weapons that Iím still learning how to use right
but theyíre heavy and Iím awkward...always running out of fight
so Iíve carved a wooden heart, put it in this sinking ship
hoping it would help me float for just a few more weeks
because I am made out of shipwrecks, every twisted beam
lost and found like you and me scattered out on the sea
so come on letís wash each other with tears of joy and tears of grief
and fold our lives like crashing waves and run up on this beach
come on and sew us together, just some tattered rags stained forever
we only have what we remember

My throat it still tastes like house fire and salt water
I wear this tide like loose skin, rock me to sea
if we hold on tight weíll hold each other together
and not just be some fools rushing to die in our sleep
all these machines will rust I promise, but we'll still be electric
shocking each other back to life
Your hand in mine, my fingers in your veins connected
our bones grown together inside
our hands entwined, your fingers in my veins braided
our spines grown stronger in time
because are church is made out of shipwrecks
from every hull these rocks have claimed
but we pick ourselves up, and try and grow better through the change
so come on yall and letís wash each other with tears of joy and tears of grief
and fold our lives like crashing waves and run up on this beach
come on and sew us together, were just tattered rags stained forever
we only have what we remember."

It's a Very Different, But Great Song and I Reconmend One to Listen When They Have the Chance.

Thanks, Michael Hill
