Mortaljive: The Rest is Silence

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

You must have already left


she was at the grotto, hollow and so pure
her i would sure follow
and then i'd take the cure
but children aren't so wonderful
that they can never die
i don't need god for everything
lord knows i care not why

she held all the numbers, she held them so close
she held the secret to the hideout somewhere on the coast
we followed her to denver
we'd follow her to spain
we thought she had the answer
to our daughter's pain

it's not for me, dear lady
but i need you all the same
she never gave an answer
she just vanished in the rain
and i stood upon the waters
i stood upon the deck
where are all the daughters
i stood upon the deck

the party starts at midnight
you park just down the street
make your way inside, dear friend
and tell me what you seek
two shots of old agave
two robbers at the grave
the lights are all afire
and i am all the rage
just get on stage
just get on stage

she held all the numbers, she held them so close
she held the secret to the hideout somewhere on the coast
we followed her to denver
we'd follow her to spain
we thought she had the answer
to our daughter's pain

when you fall into the earth
you taste the mud and rot
all the little creatures
that give as good as they did got
when you fall inside the grave
your mystery is revealed
you were never ever really here
except for things you feel
you were never ever really here
except for things you feel

***
