lyrics

You made the table but you were not able to stay
Well you tried to be strong while I wrestled your cup away
Night burned the candle down, every guest was delayed
And my coffee got cold, so I buried my head in champagne
Quick cake, the cable’s out, there’s no reprieve or restraint
And I’m talking too much to the ghosts of an empty estate
Made like a thief, I was screaming your name
Every lamp that I passed spilled the blood of the lamb who was slain

(I can’t breathe, I can’t breathe)

Every breath
With my gun at your head, And my knee on your chest
And your face in my hands
Every sigh
From your sad, stubborn life, With my knife in your side
And the splint in my eye

Now I’m crawling into the holes and the gaps in your skin
You’ve got nowhere to hide but the space where the light can get in
If your children should live, on your back the whole world
would remain
Every cut that I made drew the blood of the lamb who was slain

Every breath
With my gun at your head
And my knee on your chest, And your face in my hands
Every sigh
From your sad, stubborn life, With my knife in your side
And the splint in my eye
Cry to some God in a tower above
Can’t you hear the plea?

(I can’t breathe, I can’t breathe)
