lyrics

Just one touch
This bark crumbles away
As the cracks and weaknesses
Take their toll

These boughs, Creak
Beneath the weight of our world
I thought we'd built up the strength to
Hold aloft

Too much
We had
Taken on
Too much
This was
Too much

Earth beneath us
Erodes away to sand
Letting itself be
Carried away
Lost this foothold
The ground beneath us
Cannot prevent
Sudden collapse

In the passing years
We'd come to rely on
This deluded belief
Our roots held strong

Far too close to see
What was plain from a distance
Could this be the end?
Of our chance to aspire

Take a good look
This could be the last chance
To bear witness
To this final crisis

Faltered
A stumble that caused us to lose our way
In the dark woods
We continue our search to find a way
To the sunlight
Found ourselves buried deep in the branches
That have fallen away

We have let this go on too long!
Take a good look
We had let these days slide between our fingers
Take a good look
This could be the last chance
To bear witness
To this final crisis

We had frozen to the ground
Stood by as winter took its hold
These would be our final day
Nothing would be the same

Nothing would be the same
