about

Wonderful back up vocals in chorus provided by Alix Heintzman.

lyrics

We kept our simple faith
But discarded all the names
Sloughed like skins across these western plains

We’ve forgotten all our shame
Standing Naked and unafraid
Sayin’- let the worst be devoured by that flame

Because we were magnified in the motion of the sun
With the moon subdued it showed us where to run

Cause we were wild
Wild like the wind

And I know that it’s seen war
But what else are these bodies for?
As our vagrant eyes fell across the eastern shores

We would gather up debris
That the tides would leave
Some forgotten shipwrecked offering

We receive them like a prayer
That we sift like seed across the open air
Cause we were wild
Wild like the wind
