Lyrics

I stopped leaving today
A mile deep in the vale
Weaving shrouds of haste
Out of displaced names and tales

Oh grey day
No dawn on your blade
Meets the earth with rage
Oh grey day

You can't pray a lie
When there's nothing left to write
You stammer, hum, and spin
Turn a thief into a king
Oh grey day
No dawn on your blade
Meets the earth with rage
Oh grey day

I am beaten by a highway sign
Each letter like a broken vow
I measure the years between the us
And the now
The road looks like hell
But it's where I work
Our story's a diamond
For what it's worth

I stopped leaving today
