I'm comin' home with a stone
Strapped onto my back
I'm comin' home with a burnin' hope
Turnin' all my blues to black
I'm lookin' for a sacred hand
To carve into my stone
A ghost of comfort, Angel's breath
To keep this life inside my chest

This world falls on me
Hopes of immortality
Everywhere I turn
All the beauty just keeps shakin' me

Now I woke up in the middle of a dream
Scared the world was too much for me
Sejarez said, "Don't let go
Just plant the seeds and watch them grow"
I've slept in rainy canyon lands
Cold drenched to my skin
I always wake to find a face
To calm these troubled lands

Ah this world falls on me
With dreams of immortality
Everywhere I turn
All the beauty just keeps shakin' me

Now I'm runnin'
To the end of the earth
And I'm swimmin'
To the edge of the sea
And I'm laughin'
I'm under a starry sky
This poor world is meant for me
Don't bury me, carry me

I wish I was a nomad
An Indian or a saint
The edge of death would disappear
Leave me nothin' left to taint
I wish I was a nomad
An Indian or a saint
Give me walkin' shoes, feathered arms
And a key to Heaven's gate

Ah this world falls on me
Dreams of immortality
Everywhere I turn
All the beauty just keeps shakin' me

I'm runnin'
(This world falls on me)
To the end of the earth
(With hopes of immortality)
I'm swimmin'
(Everywhere I turn)
To the edge of the sea
(The beauty keeps on shaking me)
And I'm laughin'
(This world falls on me)
'Cause I'm under a starry sky
(Hopes of immortality)
This world was meant for me
(Everywhere I turn)
I've got hopes of immortality
