The Sawtooth Grin Lyrics – Lyrics What’s Cremation?

“Daddy, What’s cremation?” He said to me, misty eyed
How am I supposed to reply? With a riddle? A white lie?
Truth’s hourglass falls a heavy grain
I close my eyes and ponder loss
Crafting what tomorrow’s grief deserves today
“In the morning, we’ll mourn our dead
Because the seasons have had their say
What made her will be as gone as God
So we’ll set what’s left ablaze.”
Gather the dust in a handheld grave
Like huckle bearers in a procession
Ever fading from your mind as your tears dry
