You drew thin
and merged a wrong that wasn't sin.
You spoke to spirits from within
Oh, they need you more than you need them.


Oh, oh
I felt it when
tide turned and they couldn't swim
But you showed up and pulled them in
Ropes can't hold the hearts of men

But it's morning now
yeah, it's here and we're not well
Lest the eyes of a chosen view
see how I've seen you.

I can't say
I don't have trouble feeling these days
They say pain is so past sane,
well I guess I found my rightful place.


But my soul will heal
and the cures will do me well.
These legs will stand once more
and we'll see the way we used to see.
