I begged you to hear me, there’s more than flesh and bones
Let the dead bury the dead, they will come out in droves
But take the spade from my hands and fill in the holes you’ve made
But plant your hope with good seeds
Don’t cover yourself with thistle and weeds
Rain down, rain down on me
Some of the lyrics from “Thistle & Weeds” by the band Mumford & Sons.
