lyrics

good morning
how is it
where you are and where you’ve been?
is the wall still what’s closest to you?

you took all of your prayers to your lady on the hill
she didn’t speak
she never does
she just stands there forgiving you


so you say that things they have changed
i know
and i want it all
because while you’re here, i’m fine
and when you leave, i won’t die
or will I?

could you cast off
send your raft out to sea
over depths that i’m certain to lurk?

where I lie in wait
while you hope
you pray
that I don’t
that I will not
or at least that I hesitate

because if it was of your own volition
then it should only be something i want
not something i’m missing
(i still am)

so you say that you’ll sail away
well, i hope that your boat is built sturdy
because while you float you’re fine
but when you’re sinking you lie and say
“this rising water’s just a part of the ocean that is holding me up”

no, I won’t stop taking you for granted
