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
