Featuring Cat Power
Think I'm stranded but I don't know where I got this diamond that don't know how to shine In the sun where these dark winds wail And these children leave their rulers behind As we cross ten leagues from a Rubicon With matchsticks for my bones If we could learn how to freeze ourselves alive We could learn to leave these burdens to burn Cast out these creatures of woe Who shattered themselves Fighting a fire with your bare hands Now my journey takes me further south I want to hear what the blind men sing With their fossils and their gypsy bones I'll stand beside myself so I'm not alone And how can I new again What rusts every time it rains? And the rain it comes and floods our lungs We're just orphans in a tidal wave's wake If I wake up and see my maker coming With all of his crimson and his iron desire We'll drag the streets with the baggage of longing To be loved or destroyed From a void to a grain of sand in your hand
