Now We Know

the bones lay, some cracked some stained
there by the old hidden cave, their loved ones remained

the wind blew and rattled the same
oh, as they carried them off, a painful refrain

We’ve had a long, hard time.

the beast came, and stood in their way
sneered at the littlest one, and down came the rain

he said you shouldn’t have come, no one will remember your names!
leave them there in the dark, leave them where they were slain

We’ve had a long, hard time.
we’ve been alone, then left behind.
held out our hands, till the silence reached our own.
we should have known, now we know


don’t you see, don’t you see ?
we can’t leave

We’ve had a long, hard time.
we’ve been alone, then left behind.
held out our hands, till the silence came undone and reached our own.
we should have known, now we know


we should have known

now we know
