lyrics

Your lover is dying
You try not to make a sound
The stillness is sighing
And fires cover the ground

Your lover is dying
You’re afraid of wasted tears
She says the light is blinding
But nothing looks too clear

CHORUS
Do well to understand
It’s the commonwealth of man

Your lover is dying
You can’t choose any hymns
The faithful will remind you
When words fail again

CHORUS
“It’s all part of the plan”
The commonwealth of man

CHORUS
Falling when we think we stand
When we thought it was in hand
What was once a gorgeous plan
Is now the common fate of man
