​Tombstone Vs. Ashes

This song is by Carbon Leaf and appears on the album Constellation Prize (2013).

A boy in church sat, confused
Father, son, holy ghost
Came as a package for the asking
Otherwise, no need to choose

Tombstone versus ashes
I can't decide
Cast my spirit heaven-bound?
Seal my bones up tight?
Tombstone versus ashes
Ain't it all the same?
Cast my spirit heaven-high
Let the ashes drift away

Oh ay, oh I...

Ain't we just like hay?
Cut and dried and baled
Our bodies grown to harvest souls
And used in some new way
Yeah, ain't we just like hay?
We're born to drift away
Till it's lesson time, when we're cut and dried
For the reasons why we're made

Tombstone versus ashes
I can't decide
Cast my spirit heaven-bound?
Seal my bones up tight?
Tombstone versus ashes
Ain't it all the same?
Cast my spirit heaven-high
Let the ashes drift away

Oh ay, oh I...

All this time, like firelight
A glimpse of what's in reach
Flickers out into night
All this time, like firelight
A glimpse of what's in reach
A box of watches and sweet memories
Are all that's left behind

Tombstone versus ashes
I can't decide
Cast my spirit heaven-bound?
Seal my bones up tight?
Tombstone versus ashes
Ain't it all the same?
Cast my spirit heaven-high
Let the ashes drift away

Oh ay, oh I...
