Deify, Defy, Defile

This song is by Violins and appears on the album Pink Water (2006).

In the end our proudest plans will join the pile
Deify, defy, and then defile
Better men with harder hearts, they came and went
Ever true and broken before bent
I am this girl I wanted to be mine
I took her voice, I couldn't have her time
I wear the clothes she left beneath my bed
Speak for yourselves, boys, I'm too late
Once deified, but there is no "I" in "defy"
So I defy you
And once defied, I seek the "I" we left behind
And I defile you
Let false idols lie and idle hands fly
In the face of tradition now arousing such suspicions
As the poster's coming down
And all the posters coming down
Mean we'll redecorate this town
I mean we'll dance
On open graves and empty threats
Bettered still by babes in their barrettes
Elevate the craft into an art again
And obscure the who, they why, the when

I am the earth, the end unmade
I fear the sun, I seek the shade
I cut the path, you lead the way
I wanted to tell you what no man could ever say
