lyrics

THIS PETRIFIED HEART

Did it weather endless ages
Or a single catastrophe
Is it evidence of a cataclysm
Or many years lost at sea

Did it fly too close to the sun
And in flames fall like a stone
Did it burn up from the inside out
From unbearable dreams alone

Buried in ruins, they could find it one day
Cause it didn’t obey the law of decay
This petrified heart

It’s been lying dormant all its life
In fact, it never lived
The condition’s mint, well-preserved
So much left to give

Confounding all the instruments
Readings are off the scale
Tests are inconclusive
The methods have all failed

If there’s something engraved, it can’t be distinguished
Cause the passage of time has finally extinguished
This petrified heart
