lyrics

Take hold of my hand,
tell me I'm no man;
I'm a dying swan.

Tear at my wings;
base your beautiful things
on my tragic form.

Cover my eyes,
tell me sweet little lies.
I am a wishing well.

Blind as I am
I'll meet all your demands
as my body swells.

And I have no reason to step naked into the water;
a dead leaf caught in a strong wind, I am.

Take hold of my hand,
tell me I'm no man;
I am bitterness.

Abstract, in a kiss,
I'll question all that there is.
I am meaningless

Take shards of my bone,
build yourself a home -
be an anchor dropped.

I'll be the walls,
let my skin keep you warm
as your body stops.

And I have no reason to step naked into the water;
a dead leaf caught in a strong wind, I am.

...

I opened my eyes into the garden the next day;
fifteen men with swords and clubs and guns did come my way.
Thinking these men know not what they do, know not who they betray,
I open up my hands to them as I am lead away.
