lyrics

Once in a while
I sit down to speak
To build with my words
A quiet retreat
But this place and time
Where I used to hide
Is now crowded and cold
And just makes me tired

Somebody tell me the truth
Somebody tie me a noose
How about you?
How about you?

I once had a voice
It came with such ease
But now it’s harder to find
And I’m harder to please
So I need you to judge
What you read on the page
To throw bottles or flowers
Up on the stage

Somebody tell me the truth
Somebody tie me a noose
How about you?
How about you?

I’ve been there before
I’ll be there again
Lying in the dirt
A fool with a pen
Who puts his life in your hands
Sub-lets himself out
To the deafening roars
That drown my still and small voice out

Somebody tell me the truth
Somebody give me the proof
Somebody tie me a noose
How about you?
How about you?
