lyrics

this mountain will be broken down
to boulders found in prairie towns
we gather stones to feel the weight
to feel the power it must take

but now it's time to wait

she climbed a mountain carrying your weight
all of the rocks and sand and hate
we carry everything not said
we take it home and into our beds

but now it's time to wait
and sit down and rest our weary feet
and lay down these stones and leave
and lay down these stones and leave

and now it's time to leave

this mountain will be broken down
to boulders found in prairie towns
a stone for everything unsaid
I sleep with stones inside my bed

but it's time to wait.
