Fill the hole with the single perforation
Makes the mountains look big enough from where I’m sitting
Poking through the skin you’re wearing
The spike has a way
Of dimming your life…

And so I’ll sit and watch you wither on by
And so I’ll sit and watch you wither on by

A miracle is what I’m asking
To take away the spike and spoon I see you sweatin’
And open up to the world your missing
Oh, if just for a day
Oh, it’s winning your life…

And so I’ll sit and watch you wither on by
And so I’ll sit and watch you wither on by

You are blowing away
Pulled from the roots
Don’t crumble from weight
Like a wave that broke too far from shore

And so I’ll sit and watch you wither on by
And so I’ll sit and watch you wither on by
