Lay It All Down

Lay down, lay down, lay it all down
Let your white birds smile up
At the ones who stand and frown.

We were so close, there was no room
We bled inside each other's wounds
We all had caught the same disease
And we all sang the songs of Peace
Some came to sing,
Some came to pray,
Some came to keep the dark away.

So raise the candles high
'Cause if you don't we could stay black against the sky,

Oh, oh, raise them higher again
And if you do we could stay dry against the rain.

"Lay Down (Candles In the Rain)"
