To The Ground

from by Death Cab for Cutie


He lost control, slid and began to roll
And on the wings of an ocean gale
He crashed right through the rail
Down to the valley below

Down in the charred remains
They stripped the chassis clean
And the bramble grew through the frame
Until it swallowed everything

Return to the ground

Trees growing tall, weeds covering all
And the animals made their homes
Underneath its rusted dome
All things come around

All comes around and returns to the ground
