lyrics

Lead me to the light. The cave is long and the cave is wide.

Give him more to drink. There is nothing we can’t imbibe.

My belly holds the world. Everything is inside.

Dark and round and wet, I don’t recall if you asked me to stay, but

I won’t dance with you, find an answer to why I’m back under this overpass.

Palm the keys and run a bitter voice inside begged, but

I go deeper still, vowing this time I won’t be afraid.

Chinese water torture, I train myself slowly, drop by drop by drop.

I won’t dance with you, find an answer to why I’m back under this overpass again.
