The Basket or The Blade

I am lighting fires
I am lighting fires and burning everything
You are felling trees
Composing melodies that I will never sing
When the autumn comes
We will build our drums and find a place to play

Basket or the blade
Shaman or charade are you too strong to see
That I am so alone
Clinging to my throne until they come for me
Will you kiss my hair
As they drag me to the square
Or will you run, run away

Tell me

Are you
The basket or the blade
Am I a soldier
Returning to parades, oh will you
Catch me
And hold me while the cheers and echoes fade
Will you be the basket or the blade

I have never been
I have never been in front of
Such a crowd
Teeth and gleaming eyes
Don't they realize they're so
Insanely loud
Underneath their blade
I wonder if you'll stay or if you'll
Run, run away

Tell me

Are you
The basket or the blade
Am I a soldier
Returning to parades, oh will you
Catch me
And hold me while the cheers and echoes fade
Will you be the basket or the
Razor edge
Dividing me in two if I should
Lose my head
Would I be losing you or will you
Shelter me
From the fire and hide me in your shade
The basket or the blade

Oh the sirens
Awaken every hour
I can hear them now
