Dar Williams – And A God Descended lyrics

Step through his trampled wall, the unhinged door betrays it all, that far
Within our faith we were all waiting. The broken glass reflects the haze, it
Shines like endless holy days, struggling to remember what they're
Celebrating. Well a God decscended, and the real time ended. His light was
Lifted just above the law, and now we have to live with what we did, with what
We saw. Well you mend your clothes and patch your roof and slivers of god's
Shattered truth grow tender as the grass in clean swept yards. But a savior
Came and told us how the truth was all around us now, abandon house and field
And gather up the stards, well a God descended, and the real time ended. His
Light was lifted just above the law, and now we have to live with what we did
With what we saw. You build your faith with strength and duty, build your
Love, but there's a beauty, well you know the scriptures tell, there are a few
Shards left in hell, and if we wanted God we had to follow, follow him down,
Him down. There were picture
S torn out of their frames and orgies where we lost our names, ending all with
Time's real desire. Well you ask how God can curse you thus, that's not a
Question asked by us, we burnt our books and beds, we fear we've lost the
Fire. And a God descended, and the real time ended. His light was lifted just
Above the law, and now I have to live with what I did with what I saw.
