lyrics

BRICKS ARE MADE OF MUD
IT’S BEEN POURING HERE ALL DAY
HOUSE WAS MADE OF EARTH
NOW THERE’S NOTHING LEFT BUT CLAY

WHAT WE GONNA DO NOW
SPIN THAT CLAY INTO A BOWL
EARTH IS LEANIN’ NORTHWARD
TURNING HARD RAIN INTO SNOW

HOW COME MY HEART FEELS SO CRACKED OPEN
WHEN THE LOVE IS RUNNING DEEP
SOMEDAY WE ALL WILL CROSS OVER
MAYBE RIGHT NOW IS ALL WE’LL EVER BE

FROZEN UP INSIDE NOW
BLIZZARDS GOT ME BOUND
LIGHT DEAD WOOD WITH FIRE
BURNED THIS HOUSE DOWN TO THE GROUND

ASHES TO ASHES
NO MATTER THE HOT AIR THAT I BLOW
DAMN TWISTERS GONNA UPROOT ME
LEAVE ME PIECES OF MY HOME

CHORUS

WENT TO FIND MY MAMA
BUT SHE WAS DEAD AND GONE
CRIED MYSELF A RIVER
A CHILDLESS MOTHER NOW FULL GROWN

BRICKS ARE MADE OF MUD
AND ITS BEEN RAINING HERE ALL DAY
HOUSE WAS MADE OF EARTH
NOW THERE IS NOTHING LEFT BUT CLAY
