If only I'd wake up
I'd take you anywhere you want to go.
If only I'd wake up,
If only I'd wake up,
I'd find us a  home.

But God must be sleeping
Or else why would he keep me here.
And Hell must be empty
Cause all the devils are still here

Is there sun on the horizon?
I remember wind licked away this heat.
Is there a star when the night comes?
Will I bite the hand that feeds?

Hell must be empty
Cause all the devils are still here
And God must be sleeping
Or else why would he keep me here.

I remember fighting in the twilight
All shadows grow in the night
Saw no vision of you my dear
But that made me get out of here.

Hell must be empty
Cause all the devils are still here
God must be sleeping
Or else why would he keep us here.


If only I'd wake up If only I'd wake up
If only I'd wake up
I'd take you anywhere you want to go.
If only I'd wake up, If only I'd wake up,
If only I'd wake up, If only I'd wake up.
I'd find us a new home.

My daughter and I,
Made our way down Golding Drive
Pockets filled with mud and with water

But aren't these the times ,My dove?
You put your hand in mine, My love?
It's a sweet drink mixed with bitters.

When your ***** as the streets
The little girl's nothin' to eat
Can you call yourself a man?
- O man, my eyes water!

But aren't these the times ,My dove?
You put your hand in mine, My love?
It's a sweet drink mixed with bitters.

We remember days
And all those things did change
I just hope most it was for the better.

Sympathy roams,
Sympathy complains
"How much stays the same?
Life is sweet and we are-"
But aren't these the times ,My dove?
You put your hand in mine, My love?
It's a sweet drink mixed with bitters.

Sympathy roams,
Sympathy complains
"How much stays the same?
Life is sweet and we are bitter."

Keep your eyes on the ground. Don't worry.
Don't you run,  don't you stray from me.
Only three on the forest floor
Two run from one
Looking to settle scores.

There's the river bank
I hope we make the jump
A man chases us with a gun
O, little man you are my world
I would hate to lose you, lose my world

Now our bodies feel heavy
And that old man won't give us a second
To rest our legs to calm our hearts
But I feel that it's a start.

Keep on moving, do not stop.
Bullets whistle from gun shots,
Is there anywhere you want to be?
Think very softly, but think for me.

Dad what's that lullaby you once read?
"Three in a forest but one is dead,
The old man couldn't keep pace
So they made it safely away."

Keep your eyes on the ground, don't worry.
We'll see home in the morning.
But that's it boy, that's the way.
That's the way , boy, that's the way.

I hate wasting my time on pain.
To talk of these things that make you sad
I don't want to revel in your pity or my shame
Or dwell in hells for what we never had

You are so lovely to run into
-You, With whom
I am so gaily acquainted.

Two
Let there be Two.
Of each, a heart of Want came to be
In either, a Worry never worked.
To be all in One is wrong.
To none in One is evil.

If we contend with another.
We will not find Rest.
In Concessions made
Pride unformed is Strong
But Pride so earthed is Still.

O, sweet Ether!
Despite your tight Chill about my Mind,
You bring on in me Fevers.


From Our Murmurs' foggy Warning,
O, closed Sky!
To Our Fervor's misty Morning,
