Mortaljive: The Rest is Silence

There is no still point in all the Universe, and that is the rock upon which I stand

Welcome Me Back



i am emotion on a railroad track
i am a victim who is under attack
the night is coming and i'm fading to black
will i burn brightly in the land of the dead
will i understand whatever is said
welcome me home
welcome me home
welcome me back

i found my girl on the outskirts of town
she is a mirror and i am a clown
if i could hold her i would lay her down
i could vanish in the land of the dead
i am a ghost in her bed
i am a ghost in her bed
welcome me home
welcome me home
welcome me back

(chorus)
listen to the prophets drinking down at the bar
listen to the diva and throw tips in her jar
listen to the poets who fall down on their knees
listen, listen, listen please
listen, listen, listen please

i am the grifter who is working too hard
i am the business man, here is my card
i am the prisoner and you are my guard
i am a ghost in the crime
i am doing my time
welcome me home
welcome me home
welcome me back

(repeat chorus)

i am the moment when the sun goes down
i am the fracture when you hit the ground
i am the silence that surrounds the sound
i am a lover in the land of the dead
i am a ghost in your bed
i am a ghost in your bed
welcome me home
welcome me home
welcome me back

welcome me home
welcome me home
welcome me back
