Shepherds to agree with you
Ears that never hear
Fold your hands
And mouth the words
And hold your body near

If you'll see the story
The footsteps in the mud
Scrape with broken fingernails
The time is still as blood

Chorus:
I'm still searching for someone
To walk right by my side
Please don't run away
Please don't run and hide
There is a path where only you could walk beside
Footsteps fall in unison
With every single stride

If we're all pretending
With angelic yellow smiles
That we can turn
We can know
The silence for a while

Repression driving heaven's nails
Pray your ghost, your cards
Burn and rape the heavy scales
With answers from the stars

Repeat Chorus

(The cross the skin you choose to wear)
Am I alone?
(The dance you know and the past you bear)
Am I alone?
(Static. static. can you make out the melody?)
'Cause I am alone
(The quiet song to miss you, miss you
And save me, save me)
'Cause I am alone

Repeat Chorus

With every single stride, yeah
With every, every stride, yeah
With every stride

'Cause I am alone
