lyrics

When you were so fragile and new
mama paint your room a midnight blue
silver stars on the ceiling for light
might the new moon guide you at night
might the new moon guide you at night

And there I lay with a little one's skin
kept sutured all the wishes within
worshipped gods that never would I see
I can kneel but I’ll never be free
I can kneel but I’ll never be freed

From then to now, a broken trail seen
a trashed road and their eyes still from me
lifeless side with my sisters I'll ride
through the cities, a new silence inside
through the cities, a new silence, we ride

You and me in a backseat so dark
rivers washed by the cry of the lark
we dug daily just to find all our heart
midnight blue will forever be ours
midnight blue will forever be ours

Have mercy on me,
have mercy on me
have mercy on me
have mercy on me
wash the violence from my hands
have mercy, have mercy on me
wash the violence from my skin to the sea
have mercy, have mercy on me.
