Tires burnin' in the backyard Smoke risin' on the plains Girl's singing that stupid song again The thunder makes an awful din Street fills in like a tomb Folks seek shelter, but there's no room I had a dream too big for the world Get me out of here Take me to the edge of town To the underground It can't be that far Get me out of here Doesn't matter where I don't care Anywhere but here The food lines wind and shiver and shake What's it gonna take to get by? And this weave of events fools attribute to fate Is like calling bones meat 'cause they're on a plate It's just a lie I had a dream too big for the world Get me out of here Take me to the edge of town To the underground It can't be that far Get me out of here Doesn't matter where I don't care Anywhere but her I shot an arrow into the dark I shot an arrow that missed its mark I shot an arrow! I shot an arrow! I shot an arrow! I shot an arrow! I shot an arrow! I shot an arrow! I shot an arrow! I shot an arrow!

Oh Iris I'm lost inside your dark light Blacks out my sight Strange eyes Strange eyes I cannot hide from yours I cannot hide from yours I cannot hide Lord I have tried You give me no reprieve No chance to fight Strange eyes Strange eyes I cannot hide from yours I cannot hide from yours Strange eyes Strange eyes I cannot hide from yours I cannot hide from yours Strange eyes Strange eyes I cannot hide from yours I cannot hide from yours

I sit at my table I drink from my cup I gaze down the stairwell Flip through the telephone book I spit out the window Oh, it hit someone Isn't that fun? But it's not enough I got the bends, I got the shakes It never ends, it always aches In the night, in the cold It comes on Pain like a searing light Cuts like a dull knife Are you awake? Can I come over tonight? I know it's a big dark love I know it's a big dark love I got the bends, I got the shakes It never ends, it always aches In the night, in the cold It comes on Pain like a searing light Cuts like a dull knife Are you awake? Can I come over tonight? I know it's a big dark love I know it's a big dark love I know it's dangerous It's my big dark love

I saw you walking down by the river Down by the water Dragging a heavy load What I saw, I don't know If I believe it, does it make it so? I saw you walking down by the river Down by the water I wish I had never gone What I saw left me cold If I believe it, does it make it so? If I asked you, would you tell me no? Down by the river's ditch, is where I lie My body was broken and my wrists were tied Floating in the reeds there, tangled in the weeds That's where this lies Where I was walking down by the river Down by the water Dragging a heavy load What I saw, I don't know I dreamed of a red river I dreamed in red

Never let on the ghosts all around you Were directing you to your end To your peace, to your release Sadness fills the air Now your tenure is done Oh, you're a solitary one Oh, solitary one Your sisters beg you Come outside and have some fun You're locked up inside My solitary one Gardens full of aching trees Shaking leaves wither and retreat Oh, you're a solitary one Oh, solitary one You've got your books You've got your shows But who you really are Nobody knows You just carry on 'Til you're gone Oh, you're a solitary one Oh, solitary one The wolves are in the yard, rolling 'round in the sun You're locked up inside, my solitary one

Rooms full of spirits surround me They're as real as they can be Every morning I plant my shaky feet On an earth so hard and mean Body's broken, systems fail You care for me to no avail No reward, no, it's not fair And I'd be on my way ifI wasn't so damn scared [Chorus] Oh, will you send me home? Will you send me home? I can't go, but I can't go on I want to stay, but I ain't got long Will you send me home? Time to move on Every morning I'm in pain I weep to greet the day Get me out of this wretched shell Crack me open, wish me well Put me in a simple box in a patch of dirt Send me on to greener pastures, won't be the worst Whatever comes is mine and mine alone And if I have to ask you, will you send me home? Oh, will you send me home? Will you send me home? I can't go, but I can't go on I want to stay, but I ain't got long Will you send me home? Will you send me home? Will you send me home? Will you send me home? Will you send me home? Will you send me home? Will you send me home? Will you send me home? Will you send me home?

It's been days, it's been months Since the darkness covered us, in the night It feels like the snow will bury us I don't want to be cold I just don't want to be another chore, no, oh Some wounded bird to care for An unwanted job for you That's the last thing I'd want to do Though the times are changin' Don't matter much for us Though I've been a crook I can still taste the rust I don't want to be cold I just don't want to be another chore, no, oh Some wounded bird to care for An unwanted job for you That's the last thing I'd want to do I know it's impossible to fight I know it still will be all right But if by some other force Could burn away the darkness, I would welcome it Because I am done waiting for the sun It's been days, it's been months Since the darkness covered us I don't want to be cold I just don't want to be another chore, no, oh Some wounded bird to care for An unwanted job for you That's the last thing I'd want to do

Sterling silver, natural pearl You're your mother's little girl Sterling silver, natural pearl You are your father's only girl Eat your mother's lunch and thank her Don't stay up too late with strangers Natural pearl, oh natural pearl Please don't leave our little world Sprightly sounds of kicking feet Break the surface of the silv'ry deep Oh no, oh no Children don't you go Sterling silver, natural pearl You're your mother's little girl Keep yourself away from danger Hide your luminescence from strangers Oh natural pearl, oh natural pearl Hiding here away from the world Sterling silver, natural pearl

It will never die, no It will never die, no-o-o It will never die It can only grow more light I've never felt so alone With the stars pressing down from above It's a feeling of terror But there's also beauty in there I can shout, cry out It sounds small There's nothing out there at all The echo rings And disappears in the deep I'm out like a light Swallowed up in the night The dreams are dark The landscape is stark The hills flash red from the fire Of the occasional passing car It flickers and fades The brush rustles in the wind I can shout, cry out But the sun, the horizon, the flames licking at the sky And the dark all around me Bugs writhing in the light Shining on my pen as I continue to write And every sound is like thunder, amplified And every minute gets longer Whether I like it or not It will never die, no It will never die, no-o-o It will never die It can only grow more light

Driving in the country I passed her home Her room was filled with A warm light glow I was singing into the darkness Moonlight thick as mud There was no way she could understand It was a roaring in the blood I watched her on the screen It felt like she was watching me I was consumed I told her there was nothing that I wouldn't do And then she came and burned it all away We don't know what it's like to be hunted We don't know what it's like to be wanted too much We don't know what it's like to be hunted They're not like us We don't know what it's like to be hunted We don't know what it's like to be wanted too much We don't know what it's like to be hunted They're not like us They're not like us They're not like us They're not like us
