lyrics

Standing in the corner while the walls come down upon me am I really here?
Saw you by the TV talking low softly speaking something in his ear.

People change and mutate into something other worldly and we should take care
I’m out and I am on the street I make my way back home heading anywhere…

How was I supposed to know?

Cracks appear before me as I try to focus on the world as it appears,
Shapes remain inconstant and amorphous are you sure that they are really, really real,

Signs all seem to say the same in foreign tongue repeating “Baby turn back now, before it’s too late!”

I’m out and I am on the street I make my way back home through the pouring rain, cats and dogs again...

How was I supposed to know?

That it was coming our way full of desire
A hard on for hell high water and fire
Changing your name breaking the rules
Calling the kids to get the hell out of school
And it’s erasing all pain and healing hearts
If only I’d have made it then I could be a part
Of the second revolt
The brightest of days
How was I to know that it was coming our way?

Is this all I can have?
Is this all I can have?
Is this all I can have?
Is this all I can have?
