we wake up under threat of the disaster | and I know it don't help now, but still I have to ask: | can we go back to the way things were before? | when losing everything was still a metaphor | I saw a hanging fire burning down the shore | will you come through for me? | candle flame is tugging at the dark | it wants to pull our separateness apart | we're swallowed whole in a pulse of yellow sulfur | we'll wait for morning to give us back our cover | in ?? silence i can sense the ocean rising | my eyes trained on a point on the horizon | will you come through for me?
intended as a demo recorded with piano only this version made it on the album without further changes because it was already perfect.
