Lyrics

The rag-like figure from his soapbox speaks
"What has happened to me?"
Lost and broken, the only thing spoken
"My eyes cannot open, can anybody help me?"
The prodigal poet, self-inflicted starvation
"Alone as can be."
Fuck the whole world and now leave it alone
"And with time you will see,"

Tell me what happened, to you and all the people that I loved
"I can't remember"

Tell me what happened, I do not know, it must have been the drugs
"I don't remember"

The tiny little man, now parts from his shadow
And reaches his arms up toward the sky
Cold and afraid yet the pain now it fades
"I once was afraid, but now close to alive."
The prodigal poet, self-inflicted starvation
"Don't let my soul die."
Screw all the masses, their labels and fables
"Sew up the hole, it spews only lies."

Tell me what happened, to you and all the people that I loved
"I can't remember"
Tell me what happened, I do not know, it must have been the drugs
"I don't remember"

And I, I have fallen from the earth
I cannot hold on to these memories
Can not find another, reason to live
And I, I still wonder, from time to time
Do you think about me still?
Do you wonder how I feel?
Do you wonder what I would have done for you? Do you?

Come on, don't you remember, God, it was so long ago
And I don't understand why I didn't say this before
Come on, I still remember, that day so long ago, the one
I should have said and now I wish that I did
I'm sorry, so sorry for what I did to you.

The rag-like figure from his soapbox speaks
"You watched and stood idly by."
Lost and broken the only thing spoken
"I've hurt so much, to you I confide"
Our unsung hero stumbles to his feet
And wipes the tears to the side
All of this time hidden in his sacred little place
He finally finds the strength to open his eyes

And I, I can't feel you anymore
And the love that I still feel inside
Has left me, all alone
And I, I still wander through the night
Not knowing where I will go
Or what I wish could be the world
Will ever be, I leave it up to you!

And so I leave it up to you!
