Lyrics by Lauren Vieira
Sung by Kelly Schilling and Lauren Vieira

If I would commune with silent architects
Seeping through the limbic faults
I would be enlightened to the rewards
Of a scavenger

It took the flood to appreciate the bounty
How critical the fertile earth to reap
Sustained nourishment
Marred now, stippled with
Pristine scars smeared
Blackened, ambivalent

Our resignation
Is our disease
Prepare for construction
of our identity
From nothing

It took the flood to scrub
The evidence of our prospects
And perennial nectar
It is for us to rediscover

Once again, we curse the passing time
But to surge in reprisal is to strengthen
Wary now, we rebuild with purpose
Resolute in our determination

To sculpt is to callous
Is it enough to prepare
for this noble pursuit?
