(At last, my hands are complete...)

Feel the Earth beneath my feet
Heavy paste so sickly sweet
But where were you along the burning meat?
Flakes of ash to smear the wheat

But I'm still standing here
Away from the flames
Though you feel me near
I couldn't be more far away

Peel the chalky powder pull
Waiting ranks sweat through the wool
Remind me why my cup's not full
Smash the horns and take the pill

I'm still standing here
Away from the flames
And though you feel me near
I couldn't be more far away

Lay back and ignite
There is no wrong from right
Styrofoam and gasoline
Don't get it in your eye

Lay back and ignite
There is no wrong from right
Styrofoam and gasoline
Don't get it in your eye

Nothing left to burn
Nothing left to melt
Nothing left to dry
No, nothing left is felt

Turn of phrase, then off to jail
Walk for days, skin cloven shale
Indeed the right to tip the scale
Father Blaze extinguished in the hail

I'm still standing here
Away from the flames
Though you feel me near
I couldn't be more far away

Oh, I'm still standing here
Away from the flames
And though you feel me near
I couldn't be more far away

Yeah, I'm still standing here!
I'm still standing here!
I'm still standing here!

I'm still standing here!
I'm still standing here!
I'm still standing here!
