first i told myself there was no more than the sound of the wind through an open door, and if no one entered it was no crime---at least it was none of mine, and all i saw i kept at bay, an empty heart in an empty place, there was no reason for me to live, i had nothing to give, nothing to give i closed my eyes and to my surprise, my heart was beating i was still alive was there really nothing that i could do? no, it can't be true! i've been lying to myself, lying to myself for so long i've been lying to myself, lying to myself and it can't go on cause i'm lying in state, i'm lying in a state of grace and it can't go on at first i tried to blame the world for all the evils that were unfurled, flags of sin blowing in the wind over church and state, the rich and the great, but when i listened all i really heard was my own voice and my own words, sometimes begging for love, sometimes screaming with hate, screaming with hate i don't trust the voice in my head it's not mine, it's the voice of the dead! and why do you ask me what i think is true? i learned it all from you! i've been lying to myself, lying to myself for so long i've been lying to myself, lying to myself and it can't go on cause i'm lying in state, i'm lying in a state of grace and it can't go on in the end, you are my only friend and all is see is you, and all i have to give, my friend, i will give it to you. who do i mean? who am i talking about? how could it be more plain? wake up. look in your heart. who are you? what is your name? if i take a shit in your perfect world it's only so you'll know me by my smell and though you turn away like you don't understand you know all too well you don't want to look, you don't want to touch you don't want pay cause it costs so much you just smile and wish me well you can go to hell! cause i'm lying in state, i'm lying in a state of grace and it can't go on
