And when the world will stay the same but your place in relation to it has changed. And when the word begins to lose its power to restore and soothe. And when the blackness starts its spread from behind your tired head. What taxes now was once your wealth, what sucks and aches becomes your health, oh

And when the night spreads into day one unbroken spread of gray. When the darkness fills the space between the bone and skin of your face. Seeps between your skull and brain as input filters through its stain. The tightness in your brow contains what poisoned yesterday but now sustains.

And when the night begins its flow and you watch yourself give up control. What was cold now keeps you warm and you watch your louder self transform. And the one you love keeps the faith that you can rise above but if you kept faith with yourself, you might admit you could use some help.

Remove yourself and study close when next the dark begins its flow. The clinical the problem be remove yourself and you will see when next the blackness flow begins, I eat your pills you eat my sins. Take me back to prouder days but please don't take my anger away.

And I don't pray but I humble myself.
I am on my knees today.
I don't pray.

    General CommentAm I the only one that hears 'i am on my knees today' instead of 'i am on my way today'? I've listened to the song some 100 times and still hear 'knees'.
