i'll find a way to save my skin
that precious way it holds me in

reminds you of holy days you once believed in
please don't stop

there's something new
stirring up the elements under the surface

the first thing i want to do
is to overcome my temperament
let the arrow find its purpose

there is the eloquence
and there is the difference
between what is said
and what is never said

the first thing i want to do
is to champion the tenderness i once believed in
please don't stop

tried to be a materialist
'til i was treated like simple flesh
tried to mention all my sins
but i didn't know where to begin
should i forget them?
or should i let them begin again?

    General CommentThis is a great song, I think it explains itself quite well, but at it's very basis, it's about being afraid of making the same mistakes by saying a very simple phrase.
