A very bad one… What if you're right? What if there's no way out of here? Do I care if I survive this, bury the dead where they're found In a veil of great surprises I wonder did you love me at all? The only thing that keeps me from cutting my arm Cross hatch, warm bath, Holiday Inn after dark Signs and wonders, water stain writing the wall Daniel's message, blood of the moon on us all I'll never be free until we are.
