Devin Townsend – Sprite Lyrics

[Spoken Intro]
Once upon a time, in a tiny little town, in a tiny little house, where no one came around
There lived a bird who was just so sad
For this little bird didn’t have a mom or a dad
He had forgotten how to fly, and he had lost the will to try
Until one day, a bear came around, and the bird heard its terrible sound
And through his fear, his courage did appear
He lifted once more from the ground

[Verse 1]
Show me through your animal heart, and not through your mind
You and I can’t find our "one"
Throws me naked into the eternal
Don’t go now
You and I run

[Chorus]
In a world that’s so inviting
Find your own sanctuary and play along

[Verse 2]
Show me to the fundamental tenet
Hard times have come to return
You and I can’t find our "one"

[Chorus]
(Everyone, everybody
Everyone, everybody)
In a world that’s subdivided
Hold your own ceremony, and carry on


[Post-Chorus]
Soul, soul and the body are broken-hearted
So, sons and your daughters are broken-hearted
But know, only the body is broken, hardened

[Break]
Show me to the fear that’s in your mind
Show me through your animal heart, and not through your mind
(You and I can’t find our one)

[Chorus]
(Everyone, everybody
Everyone, everybody)
In a world that’s self-divided
You count your hopes, face the morning, and pray along

[Bridge]
Think of everyone you know
Everybody is broken
Take a look around, everyone is sad
Monsters and robots are broken-hearted
Octopus lovers are broken-hearted
Dad in the garden, all broken-hearted
Thank you for the morning and the light
But more than this
Thank you for keeping trying
Slow progress is still progress
