Side B - Wood​/​Bricks

from Cardinals 7" and Art Print by The Republic Of Wolves



Two Carpenters Of Failing Worth
We Found Ourselves In Disrepair
But Didn’t Care
So We Took The Wood From That Old Tree
Built A Coffin On The Sea
Flowers Strewn Across The Deck
Sails Draped Around Our Broken Necks

And I Will Be Taken Apart When It’s Over

Our Ruined Hands Collecting Dust
Uneven Loves That Drove Us Into
Our Bodies
But We Found The Bricks From Our Old House
Tried To Put Them Back Together
But With No Foundation Underneath
It Crumbled Right Back To A Smoldering Heap

And We Will Be Taken Apart When Its Over

So We Gave Every Flaw In Our Crooked Construction A Name
And Accepted That Nothing Was Meant To Hold Up For This Long

When You Felt The Sun Come Alive In Your Ribs
You Were Dying Just To Try It
As The Sutures And Stitches That Held You
Together Were Splitting
And It Made Such A Glorious Sound

You Wire Strings Slowly Disappear
Well I Have Been Emptied of Every Fear
The Things That We ad But Never Replaced
Were Falling Asleep And Forgetting The Names

Well I Pried Myself Into Pieces And Scattered Them Over Te Wreckage
And You Were Still Shaking Your Head Holding Onto Your Nails
And Ever Splinter Of Timer Like Thunder Inside Of My Shuddering Frame
Says Im Gonna Pay Were All Gonna Pay When Its Over


from Cardinals 7" and Art Print, released March 1, 2010
