lyrics

At once bemused
Now uncovered
I rectified

The inert
Grip has gone
Overwhelmed with what we understood

You were stayed but not against your will
You were stayed and we were not too far away
And we held the signs above our head
And we stayed
You were stayed and invited me in
And I came and we spent all of the day
We were stayed, but against our will
We were stayed

Ascertain
I made this awry
Apprehensive
But I could not
Make my way if this was the last time

We were stayed but not against our wills
We were stayed and we were not to far away
And we held the signs above our heads
And we stayed

Kernels instilled, intact
Safely they're held near by
We are not scared to clasp
Make a pact for a pair

We're charmed, we can abide
Let us not wait, or with to much haste
We're charmed, we can abide
Let us not wait, or with to much haste
Let us not race, or hinder progress

We were stayed but not against our wills
We were stayed and we were not to far away
And we held the signs above our heads
And we stayed
