Judges / Shoftim Chapter 15

lyrics

Lay me down
Onto the salted ground
But hold on tight
‘Cause there’s a spark I’m ready to let go
Of the weight we’ve held so long
Time and again we said we’d burn it down

Tie the catch and light the match
Then send the foxes out
Watch the sky ignite into a storm
There’s no turning back now as we chase the rusty tracks
And shake the fading lights
Of this town

All our days
Are plotted on a maze
Stay on course
But when you can’t just crush your own escape
With the force you’ve held so long
Time and again we said we’d burn it down

Tie the catch and light the match
Then send the foxes out
Watch the sky ignite into a storm
There’s no turning back now as we chase the rusty tracks
And shake the fading lights
Of this town

Glancing fast towards towards the skies
We'll watch the dust and fumes float by
Intentions left exposed
We’re heading south
The last place left to go

Tie the catch and light the match
Then send the foxes out
Watch the sky ignite into a storm
There’s no turning back now as we chase the rusty tracks
And shake the fading lights
Of this town
