lyrics

you held us in your hands
with all your power
so steady on your land
and it was ours
who knew we'd be as fine as the sand
of an island
we never felt it
ourselves slipping

but you were more than mine
you were everybody's
a little drunk on power's wine
denied your duty
and when you fell off of your pedestal
no one came running
no one forgiving

it's like a dying art, I guess
it's like a dying art, I guess
it's like a dying art, I guess

when they dragged you off in cuffs
all alone and shaking
I thought that you were tough
did God forsake you?
"Lord, please get him out!"
I prayed and prayed for mercy
but I heard nothing, no
no, I felt nothing

and I called on all your friends
the ones who loved you
but the burden of your sins
too strong to budge them
and you came out the end of their gauntlet
broken, stripped and sunken,
unforgiven

it's like a dying art, I guess
it's like a dying art, I guess
it's like a dying art, I guess
