lyrics

I tried to go into hiding
But the wolves - they always find out
They slip, silent, in dark corners
Their teeth gleam in my darkest night

I desire that bright shining gold
Even though those green eyes are staring from behind
So the problem, you see, is not naivety
But a damned stalemate
With me stuck in between

Hell and heaven met for coffee
They just couldn't decide
Which wayward direction I was pulling into
If the water I'm treading isn't good for swimming
'Cause my head's above the water
But the footing begins to falter
And the rain falls overhead

'Cause I know just what I'm doing
I watch as I fall every time
I've heard every answer before
It's easier said than done
Easier whispered on the back pew
Than shouted from an alleyway
