lyrics

Lately I've found
myself confused
an begging for truth.
Lazy birds fly
over my head
as I lay down.

Take my hair and braid a blanket
Take my heart and build a home
Take my blood and drink the water
Take my life so you'll survive

CHORUS:
As he wandered into darkness
he held himself back
and As the demons
held their pose
he smiled and waved at the cameras.

As the desert sands fill the hourglass
I remind myself this is only a dream
and As flutterbies caress your face
I remind myself this is only a dream

Take my hair and braid a blanket
Take my heart and build a home
Take my blood and drink the water
Take my life so you'll survive

CHORUS

Take my hair and braid a blanket
Take my heart and build a home
Take my blood and drink the water
Take my life so you'll survive

His heart beat
Like a voodoo drum
catching all the waves
applauding like a rabid crowd

His shoelaces came undone
as his jacket fell to the floor
and his heart stopped beating
as the image started to fade.
and the demons started to pray
and the image started to fade
