Lyrics by Leslie I. Benson 2009

Somehow among every trouble
in this world our worries seem
so small.

In the context of something greater that
surrounds us, confounds us, and
consumes us all.

We fight hard for such small battles
though one strong wind’ll make
our tower fall.

Look how fragile we are,

how fragile we really are.

We’re only ever two steps away from the space
connecting all of us and
the next world.

Take a deep enough breath and you’ll hear the
fluttering of wings and
our beating hearts.

So hold tight to those you love no matter how
hard they try to fight and
trouble you.

Look how fragile we are,
how fragile we really are.

Our birth is like a long blue-veined sleep
and a forgetting.
We shed our shells into fragile bodies right from
the beginning.
So wide-eyed and unsure of the mysteries ahead,
hesitating.
Asleep to the golden gates, among friends,
timeless and waiting.

Look how fragile we are,
how fragile we really are.
Look how fragile we are,
how fragile we really are.
