"The Wire" as written by David Hall Hodges, Emerson Hart and Josh Hoge....
Is the ghost not the shadow?
Is the host not the echo?
Is the view from the window-
Like before?

We blame time when it forgets-
All the lies that we trusted.
And the caretaker can't take anymore.

So goodnight-
Rest well, inside these walls.
I don't mean you no harm,
Just as lost as you are-
Just come down, come down from the wire.
Just come down, come down from the wire.

If you ever stop to listen-
Between fate and good intention-
There's a wire that runs the distance all along.
Some parts frayed and some parts strong-
Never broken; never gone.

So goodnight-
Rest well, inside these walls.
I don't mean you no harm,
Just as lost as you are-
Reaching out, reaching out through the wire.
I'm reaching out, reaching out through the wire.

Ohh-
Ohh.

So goodnight-
Rest well, inside these walls.
I don't mean you no harm,
Just as lost as you are-
Just come down, come down from the wire-
I'm reaching out, I'm reaching out through the wire.
Just come down, just come down from the wire.
