Part One – From hand to mouth

From day to day
From hand to mouth
We’re turning around
Vicious ritual

Getting used to it all
Falling down again
We’re waiting for
The decrees of providence

I don’t want to waste
Any more of my life
Live from day to day
Live from hand to mouth

Facing the light
I brush aside your plans
I’m going to have
It all my own way

And when that all shattered I felt I’d broken my fall
Couldn’t pretend that I felt strong about us anymore
Without your help I finally started to live my own life
I just want you to know this time

Part Two – Secret Exhibition

I just want to feel your sigh on my neck
Want to feel your breath
Feel your need to stay
You don’t know my name
Don’t know my face
Only thoughts I share in my secret place

Secret exhibition
Cure for loneliness
I’ve ground to a halt
There’s no turning back
You know there are things I just can’t forget
You’ve helped me so much
To learn to be detached

But when that all shattered I felt I’d broken my fall
Couldn’t pretend that I felt strong about us anymore
Without that help I finally started to live my own life
And I know I don’t need you now

Secret exhibition
Cure for loneliness
Life is much too short to be whiled away with tears
Secret exhibition
Cure for loneliness
I erase you now
I don’t need you now
I erase you now with all of my past

    General Commentpart one, seems to be about how they live without getting to get used to it. So he doesn't want to waste time anymore, so he decides to do something diff. so he goes away from the normal plans.....but it all breaks apart.

    Part Two, he comes to acceptance of what he's done in the past, and he knows that once he goes through this ritual thiers no turning back. He doesn;t need that one person or entity that once held him...

    Part Three is him erasing and fighting away this feeling, his past, and his secrets.
