You, there on the bridge
where have you been, whats your name?
and you, there you on the wall
where will you go to once you fall?

you, lost at sea
do you need me, do you need directions?

hey, put down the gun
what are you thinking?
you were someone's son

the taste of tears
the sting of pain

the smell of fear
the sounds of crying

a long, long time ago i fell to this place
from another dimesnion

and thrust amongst the beasts
and they way they behave borders on dementia
now through all these years
i can barely take it
i don't think i can make it
take me away from here
I want to go home

i'm so sick and tired of the
the taste of tears
the sting of pain

the smell of fear
the sounds of crying
as you standing at the edge of your life
what do you remember?
was it all you wanted?

I'm trying to earn a set of feathery wings
i wish i could protect you here

oh, please don't cry
now smile as you're standing
at the edge of your life

your troubles are over
mine are just beginning

I'm trying to earn a set of feathery wings
to take me away from here
its me you leave behind

if only i could have been there

i'd be a hand for the sinking
if only i could have been there
i'd be a prayer for the dying
see the pain etched in my face

i'm so sick and tired of
the taste of tears
the sting of pain
the smell of fear
the sounds of crying
as you're standing at the edge of your life
what do you remember was it all you wanted

I'm trying to earn a set of feathery wings
i wish i could protect you here

oh, please don't cry
now smile as you're standing
at the edge of your life
your troubles are over
mine are just beginning

I'm trying to earn a set of feathery wings
to take me away from here
its me you leave
you're gone from here
don't leave from here

don't leave me here
I hate it here
you're gone from here

don't leave me here

I need you here
I need to see you smile
