Centralia will be erased
Perhaps it’s for the best
No phoenix will rise up
Man’s ashes are final

The ground opens up and all falls away
Houses are empty and start to decay
There’s nothing left here
Move on.

But everything we lost is replaced by something new
This town is not a phoenix. It’s a new life form.

And this is how an icon is born, by tearing apart the mundane
And this is where the pilgrims will walk looking for these American Saints

And they bring questions for the fire
We burnt a temple
Watch them come

I’m happy for you, yes I really am.
You never had too great a reason to live for
And it must have felt like making love to the sunrise.

I often wonder about us. Centralia, are we evolving too?

Walk with me and I’ll show you that everything we’ve built is just a mirror of how we wish to be perceived. This is the truth.
We have lost all concept of who defines who.
We change and build new structures, but do they change us?

Some days I just can’t feel whole. Do cities ever feel this way?

Are we just places?
Are we just places?
Are we just places?
How do we know?

We all hope to grow through these disasters, but we can’t last forever.
