lyrics

You destroyed the roots, you tore at the tendons
You left that family tree gasping and sputtering
You burnt the trunk and the soil begged
to quench it's thirst with something more than salt and ash

Brother hold on, hold on to that trunk
The wind is strong but hold on, hold fast
I can't carry you anymore,
but I'll do my best to keep you grounded

You stripped it of it's leaves and you stripped it of it's fruit
You hold it's life, you hold it's seeds, deep in your chest
I'll hold the seed, I'll hold the strength, all of it in my hand
but there is only so long we can hold our breath

You destroyed the roots, you tore at the tendons
You left that family tree gasping and sputtering
You burnt the trunk and the soil begged
to quench it's thirst with something more than salt and ash
salt and ash

and if this life is just a series of gestures
we're constantly led to the river to die of thirst
and if this life is just your overcompensations
we're force fed to starve

brothers in blood, strangers at best
failures in name and you'll be the keeper of that

brother I am no keeper I said
I search this world for no saviors the same
brother I am no keeper
and I will not be buried with this name

brother I am no keeper.
