I am waiting on a mountaintop
For the moment that the sky will strike
My apologies are forever lost
Soon to ashes in a flash of light

Miles away from me, hope is fading soon
Gone forever it's a waste of time
My intentions like a sweeter room
Only bring to me a fading light

Locked up forever inside
I look to the stars and ask why
Oh, if they could just teach my dark heart to feel

All I've saved, oh, why, thrown away, oh

I am waiting like a single bloom
Lost forever in the storm of life
My intentions like a sweeter room
Only bring to me a fading light

Locked up forever inside
I look to the stars and ask why
Oh if they could just show these wounds how to heal

Here I am oh, why
My last stand oh, why
And I know for all the rising and falling
There's nothing to show

(Throw me down, throw me down)
(Throw me down)
It's been raining
(Throw me down)
And I will pay

(Throw me down)
Woe has come to me
(Throw me down)
I am the lightning rod

(Throw me down)
Well, I've been waiting
(Throw me down)
On a mountaintop

(Throw me down)
Oh, above me
(Throw me down)
He will strike me

Locked up forever inside
I look to the stars and ask why
Oh, if they could just teach my dark heart to feel

All I am oh, why
My last stand oh, why
And I know for all the rising and falling
There's nothing to show
