"Skin and Bones"

Close my eyes and drift into the silence

Barely see the ultraviolet

Slipped and fell into the deep end

Oh, the sidewalk shimmer just like diamonds

All the empty words were flying

Well, the heart was low, but I never was alone

I never was alone

I've been running for so long

All that's left is skin and bones

Close my eyes, fight to carry on

Sometimes it makes no sense at all

If I stumble, will I fall?

If I fall, I'll tuck and roll

Close my eyes and let the love-light guide me home

Let the love-light guide me home

One step fades and falls into another

I'm not getting any further

Left here feeling like an alien

All the shiny sidewalks, they were lying

Lost myself while I was hiding

And the heart was low, but I never was alone

I never was alone

I've been running for so long

All that's left is skin and bones

Close my eyes, fight to carry on

Sometimes it makes no sense at all

If I stumble, will I fall?

If I fall, I'll tuck and roll

Close my eyes and let the love-light guide me home

Let the love-light guide me home

Heart's so empty almost all the time

Blind devising ways to lead the blind

And it seems as if there's no end in sight

I don't wanna be there when it all goes down

But if I gotta be there, don't let me hit the ground

Can I hit the ground?

I've been running for so long

All that's left is skin and bones

Close my eyes, fight to carry on

Sometimes it makes no sense at all

If I stumble, will I fall?

If I fall, I'll tuck and roll

Close my eyes and let the love-light guide me home

Let the love-light guide me home

Let the love-light guide me home
