You are the longest haul from home
Bones ache
And the light outside is getting low
Oh no, don't break down
In the underground they call your name
So you hide your eyes and hold your ears
And try to stay sane
You are not the one
To play god enough to say

My heart bleeds for you
These bones are aching too
Would that I could not find
A better state of my mind
Would that I could not find
A better state of my mind

You are the deepest shade of dark I know
as I watch you from behind your eyes
And I see so much straight
As you walk your circle
Walk and whine
How you must be somewhere close to home
But you've been there all the time
You are not the one
To play god enough to say

My heart bleeds for you
These bones are aching too
Would that I could not find
A better state of my mind
Would that I could not find
A better state of my mind

That kind of magic came today
Sent all this tragedy away
And all this time I thought we'd know
Everything we need to grow

My heart bleeds for you
These bones are aching too
Would that I could not find
A better state of my mind
Would that I could not find
A better state of my mind
