Prose Remix: Mumford & Sons, “The Cave.”

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 will 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 will 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 learned.

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.

I will hold on hope.  And I will 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.
