It’s all in who know

Song for the Dying by ThouShaltNot

Sleep not as an island,
Pillar of the trenches seven miles deep
But ground yourself with Jacob's ladder,
Rocks and bridges holding back disease
And when you cannot move
Let Earth then move herself to hold you up
For if you push away her arms
They'll not return

Do you feel the blood divide beneath your skin?
Do you know a thousand battles wage within?
Do you see your own reflection when you stare into the rising water at your feet?
Alone, you cannot win

Blink if you can hear me
From across the untold miles where proud you stand
Hold on to your humility
Hold on to your life, like I hold on to your hand
Hold on to something stronger than blood
Something stronger than words
Something stronger than empty air we breathe
When weaker is all we seem to be

Everything will go tonight
Earth will overflow tonight
It's all in who you know tonight
