Lyrics by Monica Richards


Through the cracks in the wall I'm going back to Nature
Through the holes in the floor my roots search for the waters
Along crumbling brick I'm building back my forest
Over collapsed walls I'm stretching myself homeward
To me
To me

The trees are burning and the wars unseen
What we know and what we believe

As the sidewalks break I'm dropping down my anchors
Along rusting wires I'm stretching out my fingers
From the rotting beams I'm reaching towards the answer
Upon broken glass I may walk forever
To me
To me

The walls are blurring and the lines between
What we know and what we believe

Leave a bounty of fruit at the bottom for the cinders
When the oceans die, your tears will fill the rivers
