lyrics

Floods and fires and bones and skin
City meets catastrophe all over again
It catches people’s lives in single frames of film
Where they sit and where they stand
And all their favorite sins

So where is it that you’d be caught?
The day the other shoe is dropped
And what is it that’s worth your time
On the day disaster knocks?
And what is it that’s worth so much
That you hate to say goodbye
The things you’d never trust to luck
The day that god is rolling dice
And what is worth the sacrifice
Of your health, yourself, your life?
It’s your life.

Sticks and stones and skin and bones
Which is your house and which is your home?
Through rain and snow, you are not alone
We will build a nest
Where we can rest our weary bones

Cash and fights and cards and dice
These are the vices of children and mice
They think these things give meaning to life
Whether they do or they don’t
Your wallet’s feeling light

Floods and fires and bones and blood
City is rebuilt in the wake of the flood
New relationships are carved out of mud
The new and old, silver and gold
Without a way to judge
