Silence came
More suddenly than we’d expected after such a rain
And broken only by our footsteps in the soggy day

With hands drawn in
By the lakeside walking slowly from his monument
With the sky in street clothes passing us its sentiments

Oh those moments passed
Before we saw how long they’d draw us right back

The claims we make
When the mountain range is made and yet still being made
And the color of the sky will never be the same

Just look at me
Choking up at just the smell of all these evergreens
Though I’ve tried I cannot fight how much they mean to me

So this mirror shows
We’re made without a say in how the days pull
