Mortal Cathedrals

words/music: Waylon K. Smith
©2017 The Positronic Cats

Thin as a shadow
Draped in the Starlight the made ya
You fell from the Earth
While we clung to you like a saviour

& baby you never showed your face
Maybe you were trying to distract us
Baby you’ve sacrificed yourself
Maybe you were trying to protect us

CH: Like mortal cathedrals
Like mortal cathedrals
Like mortal chathedrals

Like vapour, or, like smoke
Slipping through backdoors & cages
& every practiced pose
Was showing us how to be courageous

But now we are luminous
With your Starlight a symbol
A host of smoldering embers
Until our foundations crumble
