Give me an answer
Why this cancer eats me away
How this restlessness
Could turn into a day.
I fear what comes first
The things that hide in the night
But I'm quaking, and shaking
Even now that it's light

And no I don't feel right
I can see but I've lost my sight
I'm high, so high
Like Ben Franklin's Kite

And maybe you'll find me
On another lonely street
By the smell of summer,
after she rains
Maybe you'll lose me
All together in her heat
Let this humid air
Take away my pain

And no I don't feel right
I can see but I've lost my sight
'cause I'm high, so high
Like Ben Franklin's Kite

Maybe you're weary
You always stand so tall
Maybe you, holier than thou
Will make me crawl
I don't claim to be better
I don't think that you do
But see I'm weak and incessant
My addictions the proof

And no I don't feel right
I can see but I've lost my sight
I'm high, so high
Like Ben Franklin's Kite

And maybe I'm crazy
But lightning might strike me tonight
And Maybe I'm crazy
But lightning might strike me tonight

    General Commentthis a beautiful song. it's so sad but then the end is so hopeful.

    And maybe I'm crazy
    But lightning might strike me tonight
    And Maybe I'm crazy
    But lightning might strike me tonight

    General CommentThis song puts me in a mellowish mood. It's really really good. Just a bit depressing. I learned to play it on piano I liked it so much. Something Corporate Rocks!

    General CommentI kind of think that it's about death. That he lost someone in his family from cancer...

    because he can't stand to see this person just fall away from his real life..and he's trying to get a hold of himself to realize that this person might not be here anymore..but he ends up finding something to give him more shock instead of the word cancer..
