lyrics

There's a certain sound I wish to hear
Without love, without fear
And in the silence- the world is near

There's a fire that was lit just for you
Without it I don't know what to do
In the soul the sinking few.

But Livin ain't easy for the
Fortunate ones
Who have a rope tied around
The neck of precious sons.
Sleeping through the daylight living dreams without fear
As if my mind and it's vision couldn't be any more clear

I thought one day she would give me something
Something that I had never known
I turned around my head was a-throbbin'
And the sound came in all on its own


I know all the tricks
I know what makes you tick
But still I can't leave you alone
I know that I'm sick
I know I'm full of shit
I know that the truth is not at home

The silence is here just for you
If you don't come under its spell I don't know what to do
All my ideas seem to be so true

But Living ain't easy for the
Fortunate ones
Who have a rope tied around
The neck of precious sons.
Sleeping through the daylight living dreams without fear
As if My mind and it's visions couldn't be any more
Mind and its Visions couldn't be anymore
clear
