Mark Lanegan - Burning Jacob's Ladder lyrics

Dreams stripped down beyond firelight
I would go over but my only coat’s soft white
And seeing things unreal
God knows what that stain
And what comes crawling back again

Tears a harbor
Down to the thorny altar
I’m afraid I might fade away

Here’s to the blood we sing and burn
Thousand blackbirds on a string return
There’s a solitary sun too high
Gone without the chosen one, goodbye

The ashes scatter
Burning Jacob’s ladder
I’m afraid I might fade away

Here’s to the blood we sing and burn
Thousand blackbirds on a string return
There’s a solitary sun too high
Gone without the chosen one, goodbye

Here’s to the blood we sing and burn
A thousand blackbirds on a string return
There’s a solitary sun too high
Gone without the chosen one, goodbye

Rage untethered
The soul a stony desert
I’m afraid I might fade away

Dreams stripped down beyond firelight
I would go over but my only coat’s soft white
And seeing things unreal
God knows what that stain
And what comes crawling back again

Ashes scatter
Burning Jacob’s ladder
I’m afraid I might fade away
