Before the Coyotes Come

lyrics

cannot move me
cannot take on this mountain, my body
cannot bruise the bedrock underneath
the tender parts are hardening
clean the wound and cauterize the flesh
pray the soul will heal
clean the wound and cauterize the flesh
pray the soul will heal
will not give in
will not listen; it’s just the wind howling
and will not give in
will give them such a fight
such a fight worth remembering
clean the wound and cauterize the flesh
pray the soul will heal
clean the wound and cauterize the flesh
pray the soul will heal
wash the blood off, burn the rag
before the coyotes
wash the blood off, burn the rag
before the coyotes come
can you move me?
can you take on this mountain, my body?
can you choose the perfect poison
and hold it up to my lips?
counting sheep, one by one
‘til the coyotes come
counting sheep, one by one
‘til the coyotes come
they’ll pick them off, one by one
(oh, when they come)
they’ll pick their bones clean when they come
(oh, when they come)
they’ll pick us off, one by one
(oh, when they come)
they’ll pick our bones clean when they come
come
come
come
clean the wound and cauterize the flesh
pray the soul will heal
clean the wound and cauterize the flesh
pray the soul will heal
wash the blood off, burn the rag
before the coyotes
wash the blood off, burn the rag
before the coyotes come before the coyotes come
before the coyotes come before the coyotes come
