Thus Sayeth the Mute

lyrics by: Britton Newton

​

​

Angel, are you hovering above? 

Demon streets will try at you 

​

Give up the gun

Are you listening, enough? 

I dare you now give it up

​

Can it be, my friend,

that all of this past is gaining on us?

​

Even the dogs will run, in fear of the Sun 

Can you hold the tongue of a lion

in a royal flush?

​

Are you listening?

Are you having fun?

I dare you now dry in the sun

​

Can it be, my friend,

that all of this past is gaining on us?

I keep my eyes peeled, waiting for the Sun

​

​

The Silent wept 

Ears are through 

Stories told delude

​

Now, a soldier prays as nations fight 

Will faith absolve his darling bride?

The River is wide

​

Thus sayeth the Mute,

The dead will walk the earth like a newborn flame

Say hello to this new world

​

​

Can it be, my friend,

that all of this past is gaining on us?

Who do you Sing for when your doors are shut?

I keep my eyes peeled, waiting for the Sun
