Lyrics

CRACKS IN THE CANVAS

How do we cope with the days after a death?
Empty days. Nothing left.
Not even a funeral.

I see shapes forming inside paintings.
Animals and humans, row upon row.
Walking towards something.
Waiting for something.

Im looking for an answer,
me and a million others.
Disbelievers.
Deserted lovers.
Dear God, youd better not let me down
this time.

Cracks in the canvas
look like roads
that never end.

Polly,
go to sleep.
You have
no one to wait for.
But Polly
hears another
voice.

Outside
the window,
the voices
of 10,000 angels.
10,000 lives
that lived
before.
