Lyrics

Collecting the rain in this broken cup ~ That held such promise too long ago ~ Soaked to the bone, no sun to come up ~ A shadow less form drifting which way the wind blows ~ Sideways through my heart strikes the cold stinging rain ~ And there ain’t no angel; no saint in sight ~ And there ain’t no salvation on this desolate road ~ There ain’t no escaping the black soul of night ~ I am lost on a lonesome journey ~ On a quest for something that will set me free ~ I carry just vague recollections of my sage ~ All of my trials have made me weary ~ The water in my eyes making my world bleary ~ Will the gloom be the only thing to mark this age ~ Wandering dark dreams that merge into night ~ Come to me in a deluge I’m baptized in the flood ~ The earth sings out hymns that redemption is nigh ~ But the melody’s lost in the wind, rain and mud ~ I found Pandora’s Box on the side of the road ~ Her busted, rusted hinges barely hanging on ~ Holding on to hope, the storm seems to slow ~ And for a fleeting moment I forget that you’re gone ~ I am lost in your words; their gravity ~ Stuck inside the confines of my own Greek tragedy ~ Somewhere along the way I lost the gifts from my sage ~ These tribulations under skies so dreary ~ The water in my eyes making this world bleary ~ Will the gloom be the only thing to mark this age ~ Collecting the rain in this broken heart ~ That held life’s promise too long ago
