Lament 03:57
Standing on the ground On settled sand On settled silt Standing on the ground and standing still Ruin comes to mind Some ruin might be worth your time If you abide what waste you find Hammer in the nails Then push the saw Then push the drill Then demolish everything you build Ruin all around And ruin strewn about the ground Can you abide this waste you’ve found? (…) under Rend it all asunder Down Rend it down No splendor’s Yielded by surrender Down To the ground Go under Rend it all asunder Down Rend it down No splendor’s Yielded by surrender Down To the ground Look upon your deeds Your cherished dust Your prized debris Does this wreckage satisfy your needs? Ruin in a pile And ruin spanning out for miles Is all this ruin worth your while?

Light deferred as you wandered skyward An empty phial swallowed You closed your eyes and the empty sky was Hollow Light interred as you turned the cistern The crystal vein descended You said my name and the crystal rain was Warm and splendid Light deferred as you wandered skyward The mirrored body teeming You landed down and the mirrored ground was Gleaming Light interred as you turned the cistern An empty body dawning You turned around and the empty ground was Cracked and yawning Unsettled amber towers Unsettled ground Bent columns built on flowers Folding Columns about were folding And viaducts burning down Unsettled amber towers Unsettled ground Trimmed shadows told the hour Holding Withering arms withholding As shadows were turning 'round Viaducts burning down Light deferred as you wandered skyward An empty phial swallowed You closed your eyes and the empty sky was Hollow Light interred as you turned the cistern An empty body dawning You turned around and the empty ground was Cracked and yawning Unsettled amber towers Unsettled ground Bent columns built on flowers Folding Columns about were folding And viaducts burning down Unsettled amber towers Unsettled ground Trimmed shadows told the hour Holding Withering arms withholding As shadows were turning 'round Viaducts burning down

Does it help you pass the time? The incandescent haze That fills your days Can your eyes withstand the shine? Your vision set ablaze By morning's Cruel and brilliant rays Daylight on your eyelids Daylight on your brow Daylight on your threadbare evening gown Daylight uninvited Shines on every doubt And scatters them throughout Does the image still remain? The image you despise Before your eyes Would you welcome back the rain? To cover up the skies At morning's Cruel and brilliant rise Daylight on your eyelids Daylight on your brow Daylight on your threadbare evening gown Daylight uninvited Shines on every doubt And scatters them throughout

Is that right you don’t say? Is that right you don’t say? Got no reason to Stay? So I drilled the lines And I strained my mind To explain my flawed design (Oh…) Once I read that's the way to be And I dug my heels Deep into the earth Just to see what my drills were worth (Oh…) Is that right you don’t say? Is that right you don’t say? Got no reason to Stay? Is that right you don’t say? Is that right you don’t say? Got no reason to Stay?
