lyrics

From floorboards
to high beams
these rooms save lives they tell me
come gather
around me
to exorcise this body
The fires
set by me
pass all ash hyperbole
no escape
no entry
these rooms save lives they tell me

I know 
you lost the grip that you once handled
I see
that bombs burn brighter than prayer candles
They'll say
it takes a will of weapons grade
To see that you need to change

The ceiling
is lifting
these rooms explode conviction
come gather
around me
these rooms save lives they tell me

I know
you lost the grip that you once handled
I see 
that bombs burn brighter than prayer candles
They'll say
it takes a will of weapons grade
To see that you need to change
