Who's that staring back from the black water?
Little lost soul
Face cracked in the salt river
Never seemed more at home
Hands grasp to the cold metal
Shakes as your pulse takes hold
Last look at the dear green city
Boarded up and closed

Sold out she's a street seeker
Took you for a one night thing
3 months shackled down
In the midst of a drunken fling
If love is enough.
Where's the magnet to pull you home?
If love is enough
Why you still out here in the cold?

Don't come back before dawn
Bleed yourself dry first
Don't come back to my door
It's all conditional.

Who's that spinning plates treading deep water?
Better keep going.
Lips chapped from the red nectar
Never felt more on loan
Fate leans on the next splinter
Breaking the skin and bone.
If love is enough
Why do so many die alone?

I won't be back before dawn
Bleed myself dry first
I won't be back at your door
It's all conditional

And does your mother know?
What did you tell your mother son?

I wish I didn't go so deep
I wish that I could sleep
Coffee cup full of dread
Porcelain problems keep
And I've been saying yes
Till there's nothing left to do but weep
Send me a message
And I'll fear it till the void is breached.
Reach for the phone
I've been going mad at home.
People telling me there's more
And I should suffer for some inner peace.
But I can feel your hope for me
Turning into grief
I can feel your love for me
Turning into grief
