caught in the tide caught in a slide hoping that i will learn to survive eye on the time as it goes by losing the light fading the lines if you would be my guide to an escape if you would be my guide we'd be alright clawing the gates of every estate there on my way until i find your place confusing my brain all of the ways i could not take that look on your face

lay me down neither lost nor found i resign to be halfway blind let me find when you deem it right i will climb to the highest height i will go to find you there if in the middle of the night i will travel distances until that everything is right if it be when it comes to me i was wrong when i could not see if in time that my eye survives let me see where i was so blind

and in a moment and in one instant i throw the whole of it away and in a moment and in one instant i throw the whole of it away and you could not imagine all the damage i would do if there were more time. because the rubble left behind me is only guilty of being in my flight line and in the morning and when i'm waking i try to start a brand new day and in the morning and when i'm waking i try to start a brand new day and even i could not imagine all the innocent that i would take down because the rubble left behind me is only guilty of being in my flight line and after moving and in my leaving i feel the pain of my mistake and after moving and in my leaving i feel the pain of my mistake and we were beautiful together until selfishly i tore it all down because the rubble left behind me is only guilty of being in my flight line

would you mind would you mind to take with me some time tonight to get me standing on two feet to get me postured upright to these blacked out eyes to see what they were too black to see would you mind would you mind would you dare would you dare pretend to know me when i stare when i m sleeping point at me point your finger directly pen it down as if where true all that you accuse would you dare would you dare would you see would you see that my mind's occupied with fearing i keep a tight grip on the feeling that keeps me from healing big ideas that fall too short they fall right through my ceiling would you see would you see would you see would you see

paint it now paint it inside out on a telephone wire lay it out for me alphabetically because i haven't got the time to go sifting through all that we've been through and to put it all in line but i'm here with you and i'm trying to recalibrate my mind blame it on my eye on my eye tell me how i can turn this around because i'm looking for a change give me just a clue, just a glimpse into what it is you'd like to say of this labyrinth i've been crawling through for what seems like such an age because i'm here with you and i'm trying to negotiate the way

and right before my single eye you laid down flat a plan of fight we reach for arms below our chairs and aim straight up into the air i've heard it all before and learned to ignore i wanted so much more than they intended for and it took my heart knocked back to the start i could not doubt you if i tried you've stuck it out through every night we map out every inch of it we have a strategy that wins

many years spent living low many years spent living low inside a crater hole thinking what else could go wrong since we're living at the lowest with the damage done all we knew when we were young was how to manage on a planet full of crater holes almost everybody knows how difficult it is to find a footing and it rained down on the lawn we swore those stones were from above and we waited on the storm to close but it continued on truth and time walk hand in hand we spent our time searching out a hidden promise land carving gouges in our tread we soon noticed that those holes were everywhere

i was a little boy i was a little child i did not dress my own you covered me in white before you sent me out told me where not to go you'd pack my lunch and say god bless you on the road when i was on my own i wandered far from home there were the wildest beasts they'd strip you to the bone but they did not want me i smelled too much of home so then i moved along i guess i'm meant to roam i took around the bend and came across a town the people made of stone the only folks around i couldn't understand why such a lovely world could tolerate a crowd that didn't love their own so many years have passed from stepping on the road still haven't got a clue of what is food or foe if you could find the time come catch me up in june then we could journey on i love to be with you

the road ahead is difficult indeed we'll go on alright we'll go on alright though it's painful to let go so many things we'll go on alright we'll go on alright painting images we're petrified to leave we'll go on alright we'll go on alright when nostalgia gets the better part of me we'll go on alright we'll go on alright there's an awful lot of history between us we'll go on alright we'll go on alright there's an awful lot of history in our tears we'll go on alright we'll go on alright

on a foreign night we spoke telling stories of what it would be like when we got back home in the fading light we hoped that as we grew old those memories would never let us go when we're together we survive to stick it out another night of waiting we dream together to survive to stick it out another night of waiting crossing borders is all we know marking up a map, the passage that we're taking as we go all the buildings made of stone cause a jealousy as we drive by them in our rolling home

grew up in a maze where i was afraid of the moon and in the haze of youth i went along to look for you and it was miles and miles miles and miles of twist and curve and it was days and days days and days with no stone left unturned and in my younger years i thought i had for myself an answer for everything at ready given me to help and in the wilderness i often ran like hell never to let give in i'm for the search and little else
