I am the Altar

from by Lovely Dark



Bone rattle shakes in the long summer grass / A fire in the hearth / And I am the ash / Lasting past the spell that is cast / You're tracing symbols along the new earth / I am the altar, I am the drum / The nameless one / Secrets / You carry around / From a cup of bones: / Revelations / But when it weighs
Heavy on your soul / It'll come crashing down and / Let us reveal it all tonight / I had a dream I was a birch tree aflame / Standing over / All those who came to say, / Please don’t break this holy curse / We’ll love what we were / We’ll love what we are / We are all liars, We are all framed / By nature’s ways
