LyricsMumford / PoetrySong / Poem
And death is at your doorstep. And it will steal your innocence, but it will not steal your substance.
Life is a barren field frozen with snow.
I can see widows and orphans through my tears.
There was no one in the town and no one in the field. This dusty barren land had given all it could yield.
With my stake stuck in the ground, marking the territory of this newly impassioned soul
So long as men can breathe, or eyes can see, so long lives this, and this gives life to thee.
And you, my father, there on that sad height, curse, bless, me now with your fierce tears, I pray.
And if your strife strikes at your sleep, remember spring swaps snow for leaves.
I remember it was in the bleak December, and each separate dying ember wrought its ghost upon the floor.
The waves beside them danced, but they out-did the sparkling leaves in glee.
LyricsMumford / PoetrySong / Poem
Shoulder to shoulder, now brother, we carry no arms. The blind man sleeps in the doorway, his home.
Where are the songs of Spring? Ay, where are they?
The ship has weather’d every rack. The prize we sought is won.
Look over your hills and be still. The sky above us shoots to kill.
Rate yourself and rake yourself. Take all the courage you have left.
Yet knowing how way leads on to way, I doubted if I should ever come back.
And all that's best of dark and bright meets in her aspect and her eyes.
There is a design, an alignment to cry. At my heart you see, the beauty of love as it was made to be.
I will die alone and be left there. Well I guess I'll just go home, oh God knows where.
Let us leave this place where the smoke blows black, and the dark street winds and bends.
