lyrics

Part II:

I don't need a lot of love, need a lot of love
never have, never will, never can

Even if you are, even if you aren't, even if you can't be (well)
You can have it all, you can take it all, get away, stay away, come here, be near, watch me disappear, I was never here anyways

Maybe this time, I don't mind, that's not me, oh well
Even if it's love, could have been, should have been, would've been, never was

I can come around, put me in the ground, build me up, break me down, pull me up, push it in, suck it out, make the heart beat, make the blood pump now

Things fall apart, but come back together
we're tired of the rain, but we love stormy weather
and all of the things we've made are now broken or gone

Get into line, you've been late for the rapture
And all that you've felt, will be felt ever after
And I'd say the words, but they always come out so wrong

Father told me boys don't cry, so I'm fine, yeah this time
Make me feel alive, I can be alive, break away, take away what you've been, I could make pretend, this might be the end
Even if it is, put it in the head, the heart, it breaks apart, it's never been, it always is, it never will be now

Put me down here, I could be clear, never new the way back out
Let the edges burn, burn away, let the bones break, I could be so proud
I could take it all, have it all, give it all away, maybe someday I could be anything, now that we're anywhere

Things fall apart, but come back together
we're tired of the rain, but we love stormy weather
and all of the things we've made are now broken or gone

Get into line, you've been late for the rapture
And all that you've felt, will be felt ever after
And I'd say the words, but they always come out so wrong

Part III:

Suddenly, I'm incomplete
I never was, I couldn't be
Here, was I whole
Here, did I know

Suddenly, a thousand things
I guess I know I'll never be
Here, did I know
Was I held, was I whole, was I seen

Visions of endless desires, pour from my heart to my skin
Call me by some other name (and) start me all over again

All along it never was, I guess I'll never be
(here was I whole, here did I know)
Call me by some other name, make me once complete
(here did I know, here was I whole)

I fear it now, I fear it now, I can't see
Can you tell me how, oh tell me how, I might be
To be lovely or empty, within or without me
So strange to be changed and not know

Here am I endlessly falling, here am I endlessly wanting, that which I am never to be, all these forms that someday I might keep

(waiting right here for so long)

I make no lightness of all that I am, all that I am
Am I barely alive, blood on the skin
If I pour from this form and am not made again, will I know

(never mind)
