La Dispute - The Castle Builders lyrics

Now speak of anger, forget all the fears you've kept
About love and sex and death and faith
Erased, or swinging sweet
From around her neck and between her breasts

Let every lonely body finally break its fear of flesh and say
"How strange it must've been back when we shook at the sight of sweat"
Let our worries wander out of like water streaming from a spring
And sing of all the things our heads have failed to ruin
There's so much they have failed to ruin yet

Bright as lightning, loud as thunder
We'll move all the hurt aside to let love sustain our passions
And move up and onward
We are not our losses
We are only the extent to which we love

So build a home for your family
And build a castle for your friends
Now set their beds with sheets and blankets
Keep them safe until the end

I've felt the damage and burn from the fallout
My love failed but theirs prevailed
My friends, I'm only flesh and bone
But I won't let you die alone

So leave our hearts at the foot of the mountain
Let our burdens be locked in the stone
If you will help me roll it upward
I won't let you die alone

I see a beauty springing upward
From the earth and from out our hearts
For all the bad that seems to plague us
I swear to you there's good

No, oh, I won't let you die alone
My love, I will not let you die alone

They say that death is not a problem
It's a promise
I can only say for sure that when it makes your bed
I'll kiss your head goodnight

So speak of all the love we lost
And what it cost us
Left us beg our breath to stop but we kept on and
We were strong, and we, and we

Stayed bright as lightning
We sang loud as thunder
We moved ever forward
We are not our failures
We are love
