lyrics

swallowing dust and pebbles
can be as easy as eating figs and honey
at least that's what they say
at least that's what they'll tell you

miles, miles, miles
grey concrete and silver razor
no olive branch for wounds
just pounds of flesh in bloom

breaking bones like we break bread
zion's noose rests 'round their necks

the trees uprooted
as the world narrows in
as the gates rust shut

left so bitter
grab a hammer
give the monolith back to the desert
