Where do we go from here? How do we carry on?
I can't get beyond the questions
Clambering for the scraps in the shatter of us collapsed
It cuts me with every could have been

Pain on pain on play, repeating
With the backup makeshift life in waiting

Everybody says time heals everything
But what of the wretched hollow, the endless in between?
Are we just going to wait it out?

There's nothing to see here now, turning the sign around
We're closed to the earth till further notice
Stumbling cliché case, crumpled and puffy faced
Dead in the stare of a thousand miles

All I want only one street level miracle
I'll be a an out and out born again from none more cynical

Everybody says that time heals everything all in the end
What of the wretched hollow, the endless in between?
Are we just going to wait it out?

And sit here cold, we'll be long gone by then and lackluster
In dust we lay around old magazines
Fluorescent lighting sets the scene
For all we could and should be being in the one life that we've got
In the one life that we've got

Everybody says that time heals everything
What of the wretched hollow, the endless in between?
Are we just going to wait it out?

Sit here, just going to wait it out
Sit here cold, just going to sweat it out
Wait it out
