Well, I cried out I was lost,
it was a lot to confess.
Though I knew what I was
and though I knew what I'd been,
oh, I lied.
Oh, I lied.

And I confess that I left feeling pretty pure
I still can't go home though
- it's been too long

Though it's common to keep a familiar path,
it's a long, sad road
and you've gotta walk it alone.

To hide from all you know,
and walk the ground below
Well, now you've opened up
those balcony doors,
let me in.

Well, I was gone for a while
I took an exodus south,
though I left all my friends,
and everything that hung heavily
over me.
I drowned my thoughts,
I was brutal & clean.
Hell, I'd seen enough
to know what was needed of me.

To let the quiet ring out,
and let the choir begin.
Well, now you've opened up
those balcony doors,
let me in.

Well, I held my breath,
yes, I waited for rain.
I'd have baptised myself
and prayed that I'd be taken away;

from the distraction blues,
and all the empty hours.
Well, now you've opened up
those balcony doors,
let me in.

Don't book a seat
for the trial,
oh, I'll be gone
long before the start.

But I still can't forget
what I was.

No, I still can't forget
what I was.
