The Cave Lyrics

The Cave (洞穴) - Mumford & Sons

It's empty in the valley of your heart

The sun it rises slowly as you walk

Away from all the fears

And all the faults you've left behind

 

The harvest left no food for you to eat

You cannibal you meat-eater you see

But I have seen the same

I know the shame in your defeat

 

But I will hold on hope

And I won't let you choke

On the noose around your neck

 

And I'll find strength in pain

And I will change my ways

I'll know my name as it's called again

 

Cause I have other things to fill my time

 

You take what is yours and I'll take mine

 

Now let me at the truth

Which will refresh my broken mind

 

So tie me to a post and block my ears

I can see widows and orphans through my tears

I know my call despite my faults

And despite my growing fears

 

But I will hold on hope

And I won't let you choke

 

On the noose around your neck

And I'll find strength in pain

And I will change my ways

I'll know my name as it's called again

 

So come out of your cave walking on your hands

 

And see the world hanging upside down

You can understand dependence

When you know the maker's land

 

So make your siren's call

And sing all you want

I will not hear what you have to say

Cause I need freedom now

And I need to know how

To live my life as it's meant to be

 

And I will hold on hope

And I won't let you choke

 

On the noose around your neck

And I'll find strength in pain

And I will change my ways

I'll know my name as it's called again
