lyrics

I have seen your truer face
The skin beneath the silk and lace
The subtle curve and angle of your hips
The paralyzing apathy
Blindly looking back at me
Echoing the silence on your lips

I can fight the gravity
The ghost of feeling chasing me
I'll leave it on the page and walk away
Picked apart and analyzed
Polished into clever lines
Everything that I could never say
To you

Darling, I just want to see you fight for something
Stand up and hold a little ground
Would you rather see a story end in nothing?
THROW UP YOUR HANDS! and let the world lead you around

Thought outside the reach of will
Distant but familiar still
The same old pattern panning out again
A scene to match the memory
In agonizing clarity
Standing on the margin looking in

Silent, slipping through your hands
Anger I can understand
The dire consequences of the dream
Madness by another name
The moth that truly loves the flame
Unafraid to stand outside and scream...

Darling, I just want to see you fight for something
Stand up and hold a little ground
Would you rather see a story end in nothing?
THROW UP YOUR HANDS! and let the world lead you around

That picture stole a tiny piece of you
And dragged you back to brighter days
It's something way beyond a memory
Not worth the effort to explain

Far away and free but still you can't let go
Bound in by sensation hiding just below
Even when you close your eyes you're not alone
When what you know just makes you wonder what you don't
