lyrics

FOSSIL IN STONE

Beaten me to death, all I am now is bones
I’ll try to build a skeleton as white as snow
Sediment will crush me, plantation will grow
Be the archeologist, find a fossil in stone

Staring at the starry ceiling, conversations with trees
Soon the dark is closing and brings me to my knees
All the world is sleeping but I am still awake
I try to tell myself that all this wasn’t a mistake

I’ll try see the light
I’ll try to breathe in in time
I’ll try hold me ground
Without falling back down

Flames inside me burning, burning me up
I’m waiting for the water but you never turn the cup
I’m trying hard to fight it, the flames lick my skin
I’m running for the water but the fire pulls me in

I’ll try see the light
I’ll try to breathe in in time
I’ll try hold me ground
Without falling back down

Beaten me to death all I am now is bones
I’ll try to build a skeleton as white as snow
Sediment will crush me, plantation will grow
Be the archeologist, find a fossil in stone
