You can see with your wounded eye
Crossing low narrow streets at night
Like a car crash fighting for road
You'd rather sleep alone

I've got arms that can't hold enough
And my love song might ask too much
How your shadow grows bitter and long
If I enter it wrong, I enter it wrong
I enter it wrong, I enter it wrong
I enter it wrong

I could heal but my hands are cold
You could lend me your broken bones
Letting love keep climbing the stairs
To comb your long hair

You could sleep where no dreamer goes
Build a house more of stone than home
Pray for music with a reverent ear
And the song reappears, the song reappears
(The song reappears...)

Open sky receiver
Open sea receiver
Open land receiver
Red ember believer
Open eye receiver
Open mouth receiver
Open palm receiver
Burning heart believer

You can sing with your tired lungs
Know the wind and we'll take what comes
It's a tough road taking the name
They'll carve on our grave

We're alive under thunder clouds
Taking hymns out of mothers mouths
Swimming out to the incoming waves
That's one way to pray
(One way to pray...)

Open eye receiver
Open mouth receiver
Open palm receiver
Burning heart believer
