27. Thumpers : Unkinder (A Tougher Love)

We had our hearts lost,
Getting our hair caught and teeth cut,
Starting up wildfires,
Making the Earth move around us.
And in a landslide make tracks,
Turning the hills inside out.
We draw the first blood,
Now that you’ve let us all too far,
Into your heart, heart, heart, heart, heart, heart, heart, heart, heart,
Oh into your heart, heart, heart, heart, heart, heart, heart, heart, heart,
Come Unkinder moving facing us,
Come alive at night and bring us, bring us up,
Come Unkinder shake the buildings into piles,
Come Unkinder making eyes, a tougher love.
Come Unkinder moving facing us,
We can light the towers up and tie the wires,
Come unkinder moving closer, bring us up,
Come Unkinder making eyes, a tougher, tougher love.

We let our nights run,
We let them stream into our days,
Come to immerse us,
And tie us together, eight ways,
Blood in our arms through too fast,
Filling us out past, life-sized,
We make the earth move,
Now that you’ve let us all too far,
Into your heart, heart, heart, heart, heart, heart, heart, heart, heart,
Oh into your heart, heart, heart, heart, heart, heart, heart, heart, heart,
Come Unkinder moving facing us,
Come alive at night and bring us, bring us up,
Come Unkinder shake the buildings into piles,
Come Unkinder making eyes, a tougher love.
Come Unkinder moving facing us,
We can light the towers up and tie the wires,
Come unkinder moving closer, bring us up,
Come Unkinder making eyes, a tougher, tougher love.

Come Unkinder moving facing us,
Come alive at night and bring us, bring us up,
Come Unkinder shake the buildings into piles,
Come Unkinder making eyes, a tougher love.
Come Unkinder moving facing us,
We can light the towers up and tie the wires,
Come unkinder moving closer, bring us up,
Come Unkinder making eyes, a tougher, tougher love.
A tougher, tougher, tougher, tougher love
