the holy hour lyrics – cure

i kneel and wait in silence
i kneel and wait in silence
as one by one the people slip away
as one by one the people slip away
into the night
into the night
the quiet and empty bodies
the quiet and empty bodies
kiss the ground before they pray
kiss the ground before they pray
kiss the ground
kiss the ground
and slip away
and slip away

i sit and listen dreamlessly
i sit and listen dreamlessly
a promise of salvation makes me stay
a promise of salvation makes me stay
then look at your face
then look at your face
and feel my heart pushed in
and feel my heart pushed in
as all around the children play
as all around the children play
the games they tired of yesterday
the games they tired of yesterday
they play
they play
they play
they play

i stand and hear my voice
i stand and hear my voice
cry out
cry out
a wordless scream at ancient power
a wordless scream at ancient power
it breaks against stone
it breaks against stone
i softly leave you crying
i softly leave you crying
i cannot hold what you devour
i cannot hold what you devour
the sacrifice of penance
the sacrifice of penance
in the holy hour
in the holy hour
