lyrics

we're all walking around and wondering how to shake hands
last year you were a feather floating but you floated here
mother promised one day i will die
when i call her name i see the sky

thought that you could teach me how to walk and smile and breathe it in
but out it falls a memory of white
the color rushes through me, isn't this what you'd intended
isn't life what you'd amended

let's pretend that when we close our eyes it's still a dream
i relate to the feeling of falling to my knees
this hole has got a piece of what i need
let me in, let me in
without a ground to fall upon i'm frozen in this skin
i feel it and i want it but i can't see past my hands

culture creature forms to my design
pleasure always lends itself to what you had in mind
mother promised water follows rain
this thirst breathes me and i breathe mother's pain

any second now the angels falling from the sky
will turn their lips and words to me, confirming all the little lies
we wake up, no we wake down facing earth like dirty crutches
screaming now its much too much, it can't be real so let's pretend that

when we close our eyes it's still a dream
i relate to the feeling of falling to my knees
this hole has got a piece of what i need
let me in, let me in
without a ground to fall upon i'm frozen in this skin
i feel it and i want it but i can't see past my hands

blue world but everything's so grey
is it written that children condition themselves to walk away
we take this life and we say hey
let me in
i'm trying to be more
but i can't get off the floor
let me begin

and we're still where we're coming from
yeah we're still where we're coming from
yeah we're still where we're coming from
oh no
and we get what we give, yeah yeah
we only get what we give, yeah yeah
we only get what we give, yeah yeah
oh no
yeah we're still where we're coming from
yeah we're still where we're coming from
but we hear that beating drum and think
it can't be real so

let's pretend that when we close our eyes it's still a dream
i awake to the feeling of falling to my knees
this hole has got a piece of what i need
let me in, let me in
without a ground to fall upon i'm frozen in this skin
i feel it and i want it but i can't see past my hands
