The Cure For Pain

  • I'm not sure why it always goes downhill
    Why broken cisterns never could stay filled
    I've spent ten years singing gravity away
    But the water keeps on falling from the sky

    And here tonight while the stars are blacking out
    With every hope and dream I've ever had in doubt
    I've spent ten years trying to sing these doubts away
    But the water keeps on falling from my eyes

    And heaven knows... heaven knows
    I tried to find a cure for the pain
    Oh my Lord, to suffer like you do...
    It would be a lie to run away

    So blood is fire pulsing through our veins
    We're either riders, or fools behind the reins
    I've spent ten years trying to sing it all away
    But the water keeps on falling from my tries

    And heaven knows... heaven knows
    I tried to find a cure for the pain
    Oh my Lord, to suffer like you do...
    It would be a lie to run away
    A lie to run
    It would be a lie
    It would be a lie to run away

    It keeps on falling
    It keeps on falling
    It keeps on falling
    It keeps on falling
    The water keeps on falling from my eyes

    And heaven knows... heaven knows
    I tried to find a cure for the pain
    Oh my Lord, to suffer like you do...
    It would be a lie to run away
    It would be a lie to run away
    It would be a lie to run away
