lyrics

When the frost first came,
We didn't speak it's name,
Because we didn't want to give it any power.

But it got so cold that the snow filled the soles of our shoes.
Treading on ice
And some of us fell through.

And the bodies trapped beneath the glass
Made us feel so powerless
That we started telling stories.

Oh, this mountain grows,
I swear I saw it breathing.
We built it with the tales we told.
Yeah, we gave it a life of it's own.

We dipped our hands inside the sadness
And searched for words to keep us warm.
Though better days were long behind us,
Many a neck broke looking back for more.

We thought we'd ease the pain with someone to blame,
But the fables fell upon us like an avalanche.
Fairytales can transform,
To a peak with teeth and horns
That swallows up the sun.

And, oh, how we followed blindly,
Fell hard for our own story.

Oh, this mountain grows,
I swear I saw it breathing.
We built it with the tales we told.
Yeah, we gave it a life of it's own.

The worst villains spring from our mouths,
We give them our fear and rarely our doubts.
The worst villains spring from our mouths,
We give them our fear and rarely our doubts.

We forget that we made them.
We forget that we made them.
