hebrews 11:40 lyrics – mountain goats

masks hanging on the tomb walls
where the coven grieves
witches hiding in the brambles
ground level down where the dry leaves
blow and burn slowly
no ground is ever gonna hold me

bright candles in the manor
where the curse takes hold
bodies re*ssembling down where the worms crawl
make your own friends when the world’s gone cold

it gets dark and then
i feel certain i am going to rise again
if not by faith then by the sword
i’m going to be restored

build fires to keep the beacon flashing
where the earth lies flat
blood calls to blood as the hours draw down
invent my own family if it comes to that
hold them close, hold them near
tell them no one’s ever going to hurt them here

steal the treasure and try to leave town
fight my way back down
don’t want to hurt anyone
probably gonna have to before it’s all done

take to the hills right away
i’m gonna get my perfect body back someday
if not by faith then by the sword
i’m going to be restored
