Rae Spoon: Armour

Rae Spoon – Armour

 

We feel it before we wake up.

It’s there when we close our eyes.

All of the things we traded

for a fortress to stay alive.

 

You know every stone I placed

was to build a life for you.

 

On our bodies we wear armour.

We can’t tell where which one ends.

Throw it off and we’d go farther.

There’s no place we can begin.

 

There’s no amount of damage

that we can’t withstand.

We are not made to be broken

even by our own hands.

 

You know every stone I placed

was to build a life for you.

 

On our bodies we wear armour.

We can’t tell where which one ends.

Throw it off and we’d go farther.

There’s no place we can begin.

 

All of the deals we made

In the places that we can’t hide.

All of the victories won

on a battlefield inside.

 

You know every stone I placed

was to build a life for you.

You know every stone I placed

was to build a life for you.

 

On our bodies we wear armour.

We can’t tell where which one ends.

Throw it off and we’d go farther.

There’s no place we can begin.

 

On our bodies we wear armour.

We can’t tell where which one ends.

Throw it off and we’d go farther.

There’s no place we can begin.
