enter through the door | it’s hanging off the shelf | want for nothing more | than sleeping on the couch | stumble to my feet | in a half remembered dream | pushing through the walls | until i feel | safe next to you | in your arms i feel love | in the warmth of your blood | in your arms i feel love | elusive rest will come | the sheep are almost gone | the birds will have their day | your forgiveness comes to me | when i’m with you | in your arms i feel love | in the warmth of your blood | in your arms i feel love | safe next to you | in your arms i feel love | in the warmth of your blood | in your arms i feel love | safe next to you | in your arms i feel love | in the warmth of your blood | in your arms i feel love

the private eye is on his way | through the temple of nowhere | confession written on his face | found the lord in the crowded room | as he fell from the heavens | they will come whenever he asked | their words in whispers | will come at last | his conscience clear | the law on his side | trust in instinct | private eye | the vision came through the ceiling | there was no hesitation | the devil riding on his back | found the prints in the alley way | and he spoke of forgiveness | they will come whenever he asks | their words in whispers | will come at last | his conscience clear | the law on his side | he’s the private eye | they will come whenever he asked | their words in whispers | will come at last | his conscience clear | the law on his side | he’s the private eye

there’s a light in an empty room | that leads them back to you | temptation calls your name | you will never be the same | in a past you can’t forget | will haunt you ‘til the end | in a strange forgotten state | you sealed your own fate | cast the wrong way | through another’s eyes you fell | the vision was yours | the vision that led you down | in the glow of an endless moon | the darkness comforts you | whispers through the trees | betrayal by his hand | cast the wrong way | through another’s eyes you fell | the vision was yours | the vision that led you down | the path of regret | no one will set you free | escape from their grasp | return to the one you had been | cast the wrong way | through another’s eyes you fell | the vision was yours | the vision that led you down | the path of regret | no one will set you free | escape from their grasp | return to the one you had been

her life before her eyes | she goes on like an endless shore | it takes nothing different | from the one she had | something is different | from the one she left | inside she calls | through the woodwork | brave face on | and she knows | she is alone | cold night the moon is full | i stared across the room | it took something from her | a strange intent | all her desires | in the life she lived | inside she calls | through the woodwork | brave face on | in the distance | trees stand strong | and she knows | she is alone | through the walls in the silence he waits | like a being that repents from his ways | through the floor hear his name from the ground | through the walls in the silence he waits

staring at the feet of god | from the stands | laughing at the face of fear | in the man | through the walls i can hear them moan | serene in the valley below | staring at the feet of god | i understand | and i can almost see them cry | as he falls at the open side | and they pray at the feet of god | lay the blame at the feet of god | fallen at the feet of god | in the game | taken by the way he walks | through the fame | he retires through the standing crowds | parted seas as they watched him go | staring at the feet of god | as a man | and i can almost see them cry | as he falls at the open side | and they pray at the feet of god | lay the blame at the feet of god | and they believe that the right will win | as he pays for another’s sins | and they pray at the feet of god | lay the blame at the feet of god | only the righteous win | pay for another’s sins | and i can almost see them cry | as he falls at the open side | and they pray at the feet of god | lay the blame at the feet of god | and they believe that the right will win | as he pays for another’s sins | and they pray at the feet of god | lay the blame at the feet of god

she came from the ocean | covered in light | like a vision is conjured | in another man’s eyes | i was hoping to see her | but she passed me by | and something didn’t feel right | hey | when i’m in your grasp | you’re commanding me | when i’m in your room | of selfless possession | he’s the man of the hour | seven feet tall | with hands for a women | he could have them all | her touch as he listens | through the crowded room | through the walls and the staircase | hey | when i’m in your grasp | you’re commanding me | when i’m in your room | of selfless possession | hey | when i’m in your grasp | you’re commanding me | when i’m in your room | of selfless possession | selfless possession

there’s strange tension in this room | pointed words fall through the roof | shadows creep outside | i see them looking in at me | beneath the clear moonlight | i crossed a line i could not see | when you call my name | i can’t be free | when you hole up in the room | there’s nothing i can do | the silence caught us unaware | and the children are in bed | we’re going round in circles | with no chance that i will win | i made my own decision | misunderstanding what you said | call my name | i can’t be free | when you hole up in the room | there’s nothing i can do | the empty words in between us | i caught a glimpse of isolation | there’s nothing i can say | to help this situation | i was not born yesterday | i keep my own suspicions sleeping on the couch | you call my name | i can’t be free | when you hole up in the room | there’s nothing i can do

standing inside your room | dishes piled to the roof | sink filled with no intention | by you | simple as clear devotion | something that he can believe in | a man avoiding confession | to you | and he knows | deep inside | superstition | never lies | holy being | book in hand | and he listens | hiding under the bed | voice coming in through the window | is coming to him in a vision | so clear | a head full of his suspicion | a woman that he can imagine | is coming down from heaven | for him | and he knows | deep inside | superstition | never lies | holy being | book in hand | and he listens | left to escape in a hurry | the clouds have slowly been parted | a vision of signs and wonders | and he knows | deep inside | superstition | never lies | holy being | book in hand | and he listens | and he knows | deep inside | superstition | never lies | holy being | book in hand | and he listens

as her life unfolds | she’s a stranger growing old | darkness fills her eyes | as she swears she’s by my side | naked to her room | the walls can hear her moan | the sound of birds outside | the comfort of demise | i need her by my side | there she goes | through the wind up those heavenly steps | she counted her regrets | there she goes | i wanted her to know | she goes on | living through me | the tides and great beyond | tempt her ‘til the end | dreams on being young | when her mother passed away | of things she’d never say | there she goes | through the wind up those heavenly steps | the afterlife comes next | there she goes | i wanted her to know | she goes on | living through me

through the wall of light she comes | a radiant soul | she appeared at the waters edge | a being of gold | and she wanders through the mist | a child of the deepest well | that never grows old | and she came to me | like a child | pale in the distance | running wild | and she never leaves me | when i call | and she came to me | like a child | pale in the distance | running wild | and she never leaves me | when i call
