In Memory of Grace

Heart of Flesh
©2011 Gibbens/Weston


Free the heart of flesh from the heart of stone.
There’s one who cares and one who doesn’t care
And each one in the end will stand alone.

When the winds fall down and the mountains moan,
Lift your hands to heaven and let your prayer
Free the heart of flesh from the heart of stone.

The kings are drinking to hell’s chaperone
While prophets lie unburied in the square
And each one in the end will stand alone.

On the valley floor dry bone to bone
Joins in whispers on the desert air.
Free the heart of flesh from the heart of stone.

Life is running out around the throne,
Death is riding out on the pale nightmare,
And each one in the end will stand alone.

Back in vain we look for the way we’ve known
And on our heads feel rise each numbered hair.
Free the heart of flesh from the heart of stone.

Do you not have enough blood to atone?
If you’re seeking war you’ll get your share
And each one in the end will stand alone.

Nobody goes to heaven on their own.
It’s one for all and all for one in there.
Free the heart of flesh from the heart of stone.
