lyrics

We leave all we know—
our memories, our shadows—
to search throughout the earth
for shards of our mother.
We lick our plates clean
and live on pure instinct.
Pixilated images are enough
to keep us breathing.
Those hills are aflame.
Smoke kills everything.
The worst fires of our lives;
a century of exile.
Tear Down. Tear Down.
To stand with the numbered,
to know only hunger,
to wander the desert,
and wish it was over.
Elegies for yesterday;
decades upon decades.
The worst fires of our lives.
A century of exile.
