First the whisper, then the shout
First the temple, then the doubt
First the angel spreads her wings
And shadow covers everything

I wanna tell you, but I don't know how
I mouth the words, but they won't come out
I've been a liar, I've been alone
I've been a stranger in my own damn home

First the captive, then the God
First the artist, then the art
First the fruit fell from the tree
Then the pain, the ecstasy

I wanna tell you but I don't know how
I mouth the words, but they won't come out
I've been a liar, I've been alone
I've been a stranger in my own damn home

First the ark, and then the flood
First the brother, then the blood
First the last, and last the first
Then the ratchets know their worth

I wanna tell you but I don't know how
I mouth the words, but they won't come out
I've been a liar, I've been alone
I've been a stranger in my own damn home
