lyrics

The Writer Sits

The writer sits
fighting the urge to be heard
in the words that float from pen to page
In the morning
a thousand warnings stir
that nothing in the world remains

All this I know will never be so
yet I pour my heart into words on a page
Fears fighting hope
I continue to pull myself down
into the darkest place

Oh Lord
save me a place
in the arbitrary culture of taste
Dear friend won't you let me in
to your world
your home
your mind

All this I know will never be so
yet I pour my heart into words on a page
Fears fighting hope
I continue to pull myself down
into the darkest place

I'm losing all my lovers
I'm caught in the illusion
that every word I pen could turn
to gold

My love
I am alive
a crow in the wire
in this world like a strangled note

Lord
I am alive
the crow in your wire
why won't you bend your ear

Oh
I am alive
and while I'm still alive
won't you let me in

The writer sits
fighting the urge to be heard
in the words that float from pen to page
In the morning
a thousand warnings stir
that nothing in the world remains
