lyrics

Deep in the soul there's a hole and I can't just tape it closed cause then I'll never know - where all along as I've longed the story goes untold. Watches counting all the ways we're killing the time, spending it in days chastising our minds. Mine's running like a freight train engine on fire, gauge my desire. I know I'm foolish, I know I'm poor, I know I do this but who knows why, why? Watch us counting all the ways we're killing the time, spending it in ages building our kind - man tickin' like a time bomb tell me I'm lying, help me I'm trying. I know I'm foolish, I know I'm poor, I know I do this but who for, who for? Marching out into the street I saw an eagle wink at me while waking goats and sleeping sheep to witness blind men finding keys. We don't know what we're looking for but if we long we'll find the door, the flying school that we've ignored will train the poor with perfect form. You give us kids, you give us kids broken hearts, a broken heart to show us our place, tape us with grace. We hope in what we cannot see we witness what the blind can see.
