From the album Outside of Flesh

Does adversity bring something good out of us?

Lyrics

SWEETNESS BORN FROM TRIAL

1. The painful hewing of the limb
The saw-teeth cutting of the skin
Dismembered skeletonal sight
The vivid silhouette against the night
Ridiculed fool before the world
Shamefacedly wait for the cure
It’s touching though to see within a while
Sweetness born from trial (2x)

2. The clay upon the Potters wheel
Do we know how it really feels
To have the body break apart
And even more the breaking of the heart?
Melted down in furnace hot
To incohesive formless pulp
It’s touching though to see within a while
Sweetness born from trial (2x)

3. The precious metal is refined
Not pure gold from the ground is mined
The value in the gold rock sits
The purity is extracted from it
The purifying emblazoned light
Transformative in blinding sight
It’s touching though to see within a while
Sweetness born from trial (2x)

4. The fruit’s seed planted in the soil
It must endure much pain and toil
Must wither away and decay
So that it can bring forth a brand new day
The reason we may not know why
To bring forth fruit it has to die
It’s touching though to see within a while
Sweetness born from trial (4x)
