lyrics

Sawdust and the Mud

As we stand upon the edge of it
And we stare over the precipice
In the sawdust and the mud
I am dreaming of the time before the flood.

How our eyes took in the stars at night
And the glowing of the firelight.
How the shadows that it threw
Would keep us safe
beneath a sky the deepest blue.

Now I stand here with no place to hide
And I need you by my side.

Oh this place, it took a heavy hit
But our troubles aren’t half of it.
In a world so very small
The other shoe will always fall
just to the far side of the wall.

And our eyes beheld a bitter sight
In the glowing of the firelight.
And the shadows that it threw
Past across the broken places we once knew.

So I stand here with no place to hide
And I need you by my side.
Though I know that I ran; sometimes I denied
How I need you by my side.

In the cold, cold light of dawn
Only you can keep me warm.
And I say to you
It’s just a miracle
But we might make it through
There’s just a chance we will
Hold on and hold our own.
And if we rise above
It’s because we’re not alone
Because there’s me and you.

And the shadows that it threw
Pass across the broken place we once knew.
And so I stand here with no place to hide…

And I stand upon the edge of it
And I stare over the precipice
In the sawdust and the blood

I am thinking of a time before the flood.
I am dreaming of a time... before the flood.
