lyrics

always thought when i got older
i'd take up with the calico soldiers
and let the time just pass me by in line
but i built my life out of stone
gave up everything i owned
put the love and the comfort out of my mind
it's so cruel to be with my own kind

and everyday that slips away
is just like a singing bird
you listen close for the melody
but you can make out any words

all is sacred that you hold in your heart
and it's all connected
and it all falls apart

i went back to selling bibles
door to door with my rivals
i get to feeling so lonely these days
but i've no more mind for fighting
when the world outside is so frightening
and every shadow that clings to me grows long
and all the words that fall from me are wrong

and everyday that slips away
is just like a singing bird
you listen close for the melody
but you can make out any words

all is sacred that you hold in your heart
and it's all connected
and it all falls apart
