lyrics

A preacher of men falls, and he falls so…
Stripped of silver and wine,
Reduced to a masthead, he’s wasted,
The culprit made strong by his own hands,
Left to wash them clean.

The mountains he built now lie broken to hold the tide,
He’s faded, his thoughts moored to swollen pride.
The rivers he caught swell and break over mired land,
He’s faded, a name to portray a man.

The mountains he built now lie broken to hold the tide,
He’s faded, a shoreline that bears his stride.
The rivers he caught swell and break over mired land,
He’s faded, a name to portray a man.
