Come on down To the cellar door I know you’ve passed this way So many times before You’re all in pieces And all coherence gone And you haven’t got a dream To lay your head upon All the way Down from Newgate to Tyburn Where shadows light your way And trampled fires burn Nothing can save you From your unholy sepulcher Not buying souvenirs From the executioner Walk tall, though you think you’ll fall Walk proud, though you’re all poured out Walk straight, though it’s much too late Walk on, though you’re too far gone Stay awhile Let me ease your mind It’s no apocalypse It happens all the time It doesn’t matter What you hoped to be For what is a man In the midst of infinity? In the ashes Of your old best dream I’ll help you find the lock That propagates the key And your redemption Will be swift and true As you walk along the path Of Lazarus Avenue Walk tall, though you think you’ll fall Walk proud, though you’re all poured out Walk straight, though it’s much too late Walk on, though you’re too far gone

Ago 03:12
If I could see you again Not just the baggage but the real you I’d admit all the crimes that I didn’t commit I’d force on the glove I was sure wouldn’t fit Cuz I can’t seem to break free I’m jailor and warden and prisoner too I belong in a place where I can’t hurt myself Where I can’t be abandoned by anyone else Cuz I can’t understand I tried to follow your plan And be like the man who You offered your hand to All those long years ago But time ain’t broken or fixed It follows a course of its own design It’s a train with no track that’s beyond all control A mission of mercy without any soul And I can’t seem to give in I’m long past the point of continuing Claim your prize, we both know that nothing is free And since you’re the victor, claim the pale husk of me Cuz I can’t understand I tried to follow your plan And be like the man who You offered your hand to All those long years ago Cuz I can’t understand I tried to follow your plan And be like the man who You offered your hand to Not so very long ago

Finally! 05:31
Underneath a bone-white sky My eyes take a minute to process the light Nothing seems just as it was Guessing the reason’s because You found a way A way to demonstrate As old as I am, it’s never too late To see it all for the first time Isn’t it some kind of crime I spent Years All of those years Drowning in tears Living in fear Of what I was Walking round West Shepperd Ave Weighing what’s lost against all that I have Reading the scales with a start Who would’ve guessed one little dart Could weigh enough Enough to balance out All of my worries and all of my doubts You give me faith to proceed To grow up so late from a seed I’d left For dead The things that I said The thoughts in my head Are better unread Cuz they might’ve led To an underground bed So now I’m the lucky one Embraced where I stand but encouraged to run You’re always there by my side Ready to hear and confide To remind me That I’ll never come around Waiting for time to slow up and bend down So I can climb up in the reins Bury my face in its mane And spur on, way cross the plains Separating the real From the ideal Version of me Who I want to be And I’m trying to reach So I’ll drink the sea And carry the beach To the top of the trees So that you will see My love is complete Finally Finally!
