lyrics

I’m a loyalist, baby

the roots to the tree

I stick in when the torrent rages

won’t you sway with me 



giving incinerator – born in your side

we got a thirst for better or worse

let’s drink it dry



when ambition’s missing

when fog fills my eyes

jolt me with the shove of love

guide me in ties

we’re all shepherds, baby

we don’t need no gods

we embrace that fleeting grace

and find beauty in flaws 



we got trajectory

out of the factory…

when your will wrinkles weary and worn

when the hours pull taught and torn

I will sew your pattern into me

weaving the chaos in close company



when the blanket of days wears thin

cover me in warmth again

without you, the seams pull apart

the thread to the fabric – the sum of all parts
