The Silver Cord
by The Classic Crime


It’s like I never had time to look away
Bodies stuck between death and decay
Are plastic and set up on display
And their eyes are wide and they are looking my way
Each ligament exposed each muscle connected
And every organ that I proudly neglected
Have been arranged for the common collective
Stomaching the sight of something dead resurrected
It seems we’re fearfully made and designed
But it’s a shame we can be so blind

We’re all the same
Made of hair and bones and water and blood cells
And we’re all to blame
For spending way too much time on ourselves

I have been blessed and now I’m blind
The veil’s been pulled over my eyes
Now every bad season that kept me
Believing seems so contrived
There’s more glory to be seen and savored through suffering
Than ever was through self serving escape

Ashes to ashes, and dust to dust
