I'm moving 'cross sea Moving 'cross country No one will ever find me here My boat hit some rocks I'm sinking so slowly Would you ever think you'd find me at The bottom of the ocean You said you'd cry 'til my return In my heart your fire burns Like the candle's dripping wax It begins to harden Surviving a fall Failed suicide machines Give me death or give me sunlight I'm gasping on words Choking on blessing Would you ever think you'd find me at Your doorstep with nothing I've made a home you'll never see Walking around it's killing me My old life is your new death We never meant nothing You said you'd cry 'til my return In my heart your fire burns Like the candle's dripping wax It begins to harden

I know You love me sometimes I know You always try Fall asleep to the same old song Get up and shake it all day long Go 'til you know you can't go wrong Go 'til you're right where you belong And if there's something you need I'll tell you just what to do Don't bother with me The choice is just for you Just for you You, yeah, you I know You love me sometimes I know You always try I know You love me sometimes I know 'Cause it gets you high High, high, high I just bought what I've been sold Love gone crazy, love gone cold Love is endless, love is bold I don't know what I've been told And if there's something you need I'll tell you just what to do (yeah) Don't bother with me The choice is just for you Just for you You, yeah, you I know You love me sometimes I know You always try (So hard baby) I know You love me sometimes (You've got to desecrate the temple just to keep it standing) I know 'Cause it gets you high High, high, high, High And if there's something you need

They came in droves They came in droves On a Northern wind On a Northern Wind He'll shake the ground He'll shake the ground With spoil and sin With spoil and sin But take a look down at your hands They're awash with the blood of your kin The blood of your kin He'll scorch the earth He'll scorch the earth On which you stand On which you stand Oh, He'll put sorrow's stain He'll put sorrow's stain On scarlet sands On scarlet sands And you'll beg for the mercy You never gave your fellow man Your fellow man Say your morning prayer Say your morning prayer Pray he don't come back Pray he don't come back Don't look behind Don't look behind On ruin and wrack On ruin and wrack With you or without you The old road is going to fade into the black Into the black You better change your ways You better change your ways Of ignorance and hate Of ignorance and hate He's going to fill your heart He's going to fill your heart With so much weight With so much weight When Sherman comes a riding They will be no escaping from your fate Oh, From your fate
