Can you hear the road from this place?
Can you hear footsteps? Voices?
Can you see the blood on my sleeve?
I have fallen in the forest. Did you hear me?

In the loneliness, oh the loneliness
And the scream to prove to everyone that I exist
In the loneliness, oh the loneliness
And the scream to bring the blood to the front of my face again

Am I here? Of course I am, yes!
All I need is your hand to drag me out again
It wasn't me, I didn't dig this ditch
I was walking for weeks before I fell in

To the loneliness, oh the loneliness
And the scream to prove to everyone that I exist
In the loneliness, oh the loneliness
And the scream to fill a thousand black balloons with air

Fall down, find God, just to lose it again
Glue the community together, we were hammering it
Fell down, found love, but I can lose it again
But now our communal heart, it beats miles from here

Fall down, find God, just to lose it again
Glue the community together, we were hammering it
Fell down, found love, but I can lose it again
But now our communal heart, it beats miles from here

Fall down, find God, just to lose it again
Glue the community together, we were hammering it
Fell down, found love, but I can lose it again
But now our communal heart, it beats miles from here

    General CommentI believe that the second part starts:

    Fall down
    Find God
    Just to lose it again

    Then I get a little lost...

    General CommentHere's my take for the last part:

    (whoa)
    I'm all done playing God just to lose it again
    Put community together, we were hammering it
    Well I'm done playing God, I can lose it again
    I'll never calm your old heart, it beats miles from here

    Anyone else have thoughts?

    Lyric CorrectionWell I'm done playing God just to lose it again
    Leave it to me to keep together, we were hammerin' it
    Well I'm done playing God, I can lose it again

    General CommentDefinitely "communal heart", you're right s4m84. Apart from that I think the lyrics are right.

    Lyric Correctionlyrics from the cd book:

    Can you hear the road from this place?
    Can you hear footsteps, voices?

    Can you see the blood on my sleeve?
    I have fallen in the forest
    Did you hear me?

    In the loneliness
    oh the loneliness and the scream
    to prove to everyone that I exist
    in the loneliness
    oh the loneliness and the scream
    to bring the blood to the front of my face again

    Am I here?
    Of course I am, yes
    All I need is a hand
    to drag me out again

    It wasn't me, I didn't dig this ditch
    I was walking for weeks
    before I fell in

    To the loneliness
    oh the loneliness and the scream
    to prove to everyone that I exist
    in the loneliness
    oh the loneliness and the scream
    to fill a thousand black balloons with air

    We fall down, find God
    just to lose it again
    glue the community together
    we were hammering it

    I fell down, found love
    but I can't lose it again
    But now our communal heart beats miles from here.
