lyrics

I feel you quaking in the seams of my shirt
I’ve worn this lie so thin that it hurts
And I’m aching for this shield to unravel
and for its pieces to fall to the earth

I cannot see you but I know you’re there
And as far as I can tell you are everywhere
And I don’t quite know where this darkness ends
And your skin begins

Fa la la la la la la
Follow my footsteps
Lightly we tread this sacred ground
La la la la la la la
There’s no need to look back
Within this moment
Is the only thing to be found

This feeling is ancient
Your skin like the earth
Oh, what I’d give to lay down in the dirt
And how do you measure the worth
Of the ground that you stand on?

The air hangs like a veil in between us
Skin so pale, you look like a poltergeist
and I don’t dare reach out and touch you
For fear that you might turn to dust

Fa la la la la la la
Follow my footsteps
Lightly we tread this sacred ground
La la la la la la la
There’s no need to look back
Within this moment
Is the only thing to be found

Oh, these barriers, they are so thin
Can you manage to let me in?
Oh, this world of ours quickly spins
Oh, can anyone tell me what is sin?

Fa la la la la la la
Follow my footsteps
Lightly we tread this sacred ground
La la la la la la la
There’s no need to look back
Within this moment
Is the only thing to be found
