lyrics

Lately,
I’ve learned to let things be
And accept the fact
That nothing lasts
So enjoy the time we have
There’s no use
In wading in the throes
When everything is changing
It all just comes and goes

But ideas, they last
As long as there are
Hearts to hold them
So carry this song
Into your heart

We need no cemetery
Our hearts are where we’ll bury
The time that you shined
No, that grave ain’t necessary
My heart is where I’ll bury
My pride and my lies

Recently,
I made an odd discovery
On the side of the street
I found a discarded Eulogy
Andy
The man’s name was Andy
I didn’t know him
But it seems to me
Those that did
They loved him
And will miss him dearly
But he left them with
The joy he generated
I don’t know if these words made it
So please, carry his song into your heart

We need no cemetery
Our hearts are where we’ll bury
The time that you shined
No, that grave ain’t necessary
My heart is where I’ll bury
My pride and my lies

It’s a heavy burden
To carry on
I know that it’s hard
To carry
But you left with us one thing:
Transmissions
Permeating time
And our lives

Our history will carry
Your history and vary
The heights of your rites
From my null-set sanctuary
I’ll close my eyes and marry
The night to the sky
