By And Down

Album: Three Sixty (2013)
  • Moving in and out of the shadows
    It's no easier mission
    Holding onto how I picture you

    Showing only bits and pieces
    'Till the tide betrays you and your empty allocution

    Searching your eyes for a hint or a trace of humility
    Searching your eyes for the saint is an act of futility
    Searching your eyes for a hint or a trace of it
    Searching your eyes for humility
    Searching your eyes for a hint or a trace
    I'm still searching searching

    Showing all the missing pieces
    'Till the light betrays you and your empty allocution
    Saw the Piper by and down the river
    Caught his crippled alchemy
    From pounding waves of adoration

    Pied Piper float on down the river
    Bloated carcass crippled me
    The weight of adoration

    Moving in and out of the shadows
    It's no easy mission
    Holding on to how I picture you Writer/s: Billy Howerdel, Maynard James Keenan
