Lyrics
Dazzling darkness
my mind has not a lot to think
here in the desert
a soul has not enough to drink

Silence surrounds me
like an old black cape
I guess redemption will have to wait
have to wait

you'll hear me sigh

Breaking the silence
like a pebble on a lake
There's only so much
that any single soul can take

I lie awake

Now that I'm in here
there's no way out
is anyone listening
to hear me shout?
hear me shout

Circular thinking
like echoes in a cave
all good intentions
or another road to pave

Silence surrounds me
like an old black cape
I guess redemption will have to wait
have to wait

you'll hear me sigh
