Ghost Signs – This Town Was Built On Landfill And Salt II (Excerpt) by xxiainxx

This town was built on landfill and salt
Now the salt has collapsed
And the rest is on fire

Under neon crucifix
Behind painted screens
Lift up thy holy innocents
Laid on an alter in disgust

Do you see the hands of the devil in the things you destroy?

We’re tied to this land
And we’re tied to each other
But we’re tired of this land
And we’re tired of each other
We’re a stumbling and we’re a staggering
Looking for a place
Where we can dance our beautifully awkward dance
On these rusted soils once more

These small things rebuild
These small things rebuild
