we all act like animals
scouring the dirt just for handfuls
of decay we think will ease our troubled minds
every day is like a little war
we try to fight but then we quit before
it’s time

you go down to the riverbed to wash your feet
you slip in real quietly to be discrete
oh addiction only tastes sweet
‘tilit’s inside

we all wanna dance like little girls
utterly weightless in a carefree world
but instead we just stiffly smile and nod
every day you give a little more
then look back and see you closed the door
on your life

some hide and some seek
some lay down at lazarus’ feet
in the dark when the cold came upon him

we all wanna see our broken dreams
played out in details on the screen
of our lives when we make it to the other side
where every day’s another open door
where we get all we hungered for
