lyrics

To all you hearts who feel the way I do
Like something snuck in somewhere and buried you
And to all you souls who haunt this tattered night
You know nothing we wish for will ever set things right

So we cash in our social capital
That list of loved ones that we can't seem to love at all
All that life and light that you can't quite reach or touch
It's always insufficient, it's always much too much

So let's hit the town, smile and hide our freakish face
And baby, ain't this world a lonely, lonely place
By nature cursed, or else by nurture carved
We ache to cry out, to cry out the creatures that we are

Baby, rise, rise, rise, black the blue skies
Rise, rise, rise, black the blue skies
Even as we fall, fall, fall to earth, we fill these arms that hold these hurts
And rise, rise, rise to black the blue skies

You go back home, you leave the lights down low
And steer clear of mirrors and that enemy shape they show
You rack your brain, you go groping through that dark
Hoping to find that fatal wound, that one decisive scar

As if it would heal to yield some perfect life
As if a destiny was ever shaped without a knife
As if your song was just some static noise
As if your screaming was someone else's voice

So cry out loud, the proud song of fear and shame
And maybe the darkness will speak its secret name
Rise, baby, rise, rise like some darkened star
Rise up and cry out, and cry out the creature that you are

Baby, rise, rise, rise, black the blue skies
Rise, rise, rise, black the blue skies
Even as we fall, fall, fall to earth, we fill these arms that hold these hurts
And rise, rise, rise to black the blue skies

Rise, rise, rise, black the blue skies
