Walking in black robe
My aura fills the air
Now if I can only walk on water

Instead I'm filling in the cracks
Of this dirty, torn-up road
Mental cathedrals painting pictures in my mind

I've got the tools in hand
And a one-man marching band
To entertain and please the crowd in my head

I'm going to fix the world
And mend a broken heart
Pain is a void I need to fill and to remember

I need to replace

I need to forget

There is prison in the air
There are prisons everywhere
Or are they merely a prism
Magnifying my pain in a deranged view - a flaw-filled vain logic?

Suffering, little boy
I try to wipe his tears
But, his face is constantly wet
(A) forever flowing stream

I hold him in my arms
Just as I secure my grip around him
I find I'm hugging myself
And the tears, my tears, are falling on the ground

My tears are falling on the ground

NEXT TWO VERSES ARE SUNG SIMULTANEOUSLY:
DAVID:
My mission to fix the world
Is painful in my soul, the sole of my shoe
I'll keep walking
(To) see if I can meet myself - face to face - within the darkness


KELLY:
You need to climb down
Before you hurt your pride

I'm still falling
I'm still falling
But you're falling with me
