  • Well she tossed all night like a raging sea
    Woke up and climbed from the suicide machine
    With her Spanish candles and her Persian poems
    Stuck on the rocks inside opus 40 stoned
    And scratching her wrists in the pouring rain
    She collapses down upon the ocean floor again

    Tears in waves minds on fire
    Nights alone by your side

    Catskill mansions buried screams I'm alive
    She cried but I don't know what it means
    Somewhere out there across the moonlit sands
    There's a line drawn like the lines on her own hand
    And slamming her eyes locking the door
    She collapses down upon the ocean floor again

    Tears in waves minds on fire
    Nights alone by your side

    Tears in waves minds on fire
    Nights alone by your side Writer/s: ADAM SNYDER, DAVID FRIDMAN, DAVID FRIDMANN, JONATHAN DANIEL DONAHUE, JONATHAN DONAHUE, SEAN MACKOWIAK, SEAN THOMAS MACKOWIAK
