radical face – a pound of flesh lyrics


“a pound of flesh”

my feet plow on
from light to dawn
my empty belly in my body aches
ain’t hard to take
next to the weight i carry in my chest
a pound of flesh
could never tip the scale that i’ve made
i should have stayed
but i was never [?]
i hear your voices in the wind that cuts the night
and i pray to whatever is listening things’ll be all right
all my bolder life
your heart still beating
so don’t you mind, don’t you mind
we all trip sometimes
i can still hear your feet as you ran from the house
knowing you won’t be back
doesn’t mean that i will stop waiting
(you) told me then, hold me down, hold me up to the fire
(but?) don’t you dare hold me back
i see your faces in the clouds that scar the night
and i pray to whoever is listening things’ll be all right
then today i wake up feeling easy
and find i’m on the more familiar roads
i got a darkness wrapped inside me
but now it ain’t so hard to let it go
so keep a candle burning in the window
i’m almost home
