it's been a long time since i hurt
in the absence of reason
breathing in water and in dirt
amphibious
it's been a long time

it's been a long time since i heard
the words that i'm speaking
soft as the wool of listless lambs
on the verge of the bleeding
it's been a long time

i steal
the words that fall from her
red lips
not like i hoped
and i know
i want it all wrong

searching the pages for a time
when words still had meaning
searching the words for any sign
if this is dignity...
it's been a long time

    General CommentWhat are the lyrics in the end of the song before the last chorus?

    I hear something like

    good morning fall in her mouth
    makes every word she wispers
    she is words
    she is words that i can't lie

    But I'm not too sure...they don't make sense I guess :(
