“Roll Away Your Stone”

27 July 2011

I posted this song back in January, but with the departure of my friend S. from Boston yesterday, who I will always associate with this song, it seems appropriate to repost.

Roll away your stone, I’ll roll away mine.
Together we can see what we can find.
Don’t leave me alone at this time,
For I am afraid of what I will discover inside.

You told me that I would find a home,
Within the fragile substance of my soul.
And I have filled this void with things unreal,
And all the while my character it steals.

But “darkness” is a harsh term, don’t you think?
And yet it dominates the things I see.

It seems that all my bridges have been burned,
But you say that’s exactly how this grace thing works.
It’s not the long walk home that will change this heart,
But the welcome I receive with the restart.

But “darkness” is a harsh term, don’t you think?
And yet it dominates the things I see.
Well, “darkness” is a harsh term, don’t you think?
And yet it dominates the things I see.

Stars, hide your fires,
These here are my desires,
And I won’t give them up to you this time around.
And so, I’ll be found with my stake stuck in this ground,
Marking the territory of this newly impassioned soul.

But you, you’ve gone too far this time.
You have neither reason nor rhyme
With which to take this soul that is so rightfully mine.
