lyrics

there is an ember of a fallen star
in the hot springs of my veins
fuel of a fusion's fire
we burst aflame and then expire
I lay my babe
down in the water

I sing: a body
born of wonder, born of pain
everybody
we shall pass just as we came
in fire and flood
the earth gives issue
steam and mud
blood and tissue
thunder rolls and then it rains

flesh is brief, and labor tires
I'm bathed in sweat and tears
and swollen with desire
in every cell, a coiled viper
of wisdom and despair
birthmark that I bear

I sing: a body
born of wonder, born of pain
everybody
we shall pass just as we came
fire of fossil
leaps in black coal
fuse of a missile
deep in my soul
thunder rolls and then it rains



when my heart is filled
with fear and hunger
the storm and thunder
will surely tremble
and subside
I know I will be lifted higher
into the light

I sing my best in the choir
I put my faith
in the wounds of the martyr
I send my hymn out on the wire
release and reunion
in the eternity of fire

I sing: a body
born of wonder, born of pain
everybody
we shall pass just as we came
a child is born
a billion years old
diamond formed
of a hot volcano
thunder rolls and then it rains
