Rise Against — The Dirt Whispered lyrics

[Intro]
She got down on hands and knees,
One ear against the ground, holding
Her breath to hear something,
But the dirt made not a sound tonight.

[Verse 1]
Echoes of songs still lurk on distant foreign shores, where we
Danced just to please the gods that only ask for more, and so it goes

[Pre-Chorus]
But still we give ourselves to this,
We can't spend our lives waiting to live.

[Chorus]
On cold nights, in a prayer for dawn,
But daylight isn't what she wants.
The concrete, calls my name again,
I'm falling, through the cracks I slip.

[Verse 2]
The postcard says wish you were here
But I'd rather I was there, holding
On to the simple things
Before they disappear, that's what I meant.

[Pre-Chorus]
But that was then, and this is now,
I'll make it up to you somehow!

[Chorus]
On cold nights, in a prayer for dawn,
But daylight isn't what she wants.
The concrete, calls my name again,
I'm falling, through the cracks I slip.

[Hook]
A destination, a fading smile
Another station, another mile
Another day gone, I swore that I will
Be there before dawn,
So be there I will

[Bridge]
She got down on hands and knees,
One ear against the ground, holding
Her breath to hear something,
Anything at all
The Dirt Whispered,
"Child, I'm coming home."

[Chorus]
On cold nights, in a prayer for dawn,
But daylight isn't what she wants.
The concrete, calls my name again,
I'm falling, through the cracks I slip.

[Outro]
I slip,
Through the cracks I slip,
Through the cracks I slip,
Through the cracks I slip,
Through the cracks I slip.
