The Wonderground

Album: The Wonderground (2003)
  • I worship at no altars
    follow no beaten trail
    try it cause I want to
    sometimes win sometimes fail

    stepping off this moving train
    estranged and isolated
    I will not go back again
    how long have we waited

    mute with goodbye
    wanting to cry
    no provocation
    no destination
    terminal promises dying hard

    so this is where I find I'm found
    release me to the wonderground
    take my costume suitcase from me
    skin and bones are all I will be
    heart and soul go flying free
    here in the wonderground
    devastation earthquake tremble
    you and I so reassembled
    miracles are every day now
    here in the wonderground

    questions with no answers
    coming from everywhere
    echoes of the past I hear but
    take no shelter there

    God knows I know your losses
    how I feel them too
    this ticket gets us all the way
    to our waterloo

    mute with goodbye
    wanting to cry
    no provocation
    no destination
    terminal promises dying hard

    so this is where I find I'm found
    release me to the wonderground
    life is short and days are long
    body weak while heart is strong
    moment to moment love beats on
    here in the wonderground
    devastation earthquake tremble
    you and I so reassembled
    miracles are every day now
    here in the wonderground

    I am here in the wonderground
