When your tears are flowing
I will build an ark
Until all of our wreckages
Are covered by the flood
Our lips will lock forever
Underneath those great black waves
Cast out all your white doves
It is all saints day

I’ll give up my words
Before they’re all taken away
I’ll let you be the nail
For each work my hands have made
A sower is arriving
He will sift the dirt and grain
Cast out all your demons
It is all saints day

She will be a lover
She will be a thief
She will be a long low note
Ringing in each heartbeat
A howling wind is coming
It’ll blow your pain away
Cast out all your sorrow
It is all saints day

When the stars are falling
From the sky like pale stones
And the night is emptied out
And folded like a scroll
Our love will be a ribbon
Streaming through the endless space
Cast out all you’re keeping
It is all saints day

On that murky river
We will float among the pyres
Fire, fire, fire
The answer’s in the dark
And there is no escaping
From the clutching hands of grace

Cast out all your torch lights
Cast out all your maps
Cast out all your footsteps
Lie by her side in the black
Cast out her deep blue eyes
Cast out her sweet face
A city is descending
It is all saints day
