Lightning Rod

I am waiting
On a mountaintop
For the moment that the sky will strike
My apologies
Are forever lost
Soon to ashes in a flash of light

Miles from away from me
Hope is fading soon
Gone forever it's a waste of time
My intentions
Like a sweeter room
Only bring to me a fading light

Locked up forever inside
I look to the stars and ask why
If they could just teach my dark heart to feel
All I've saved - why
Thrown away

I am waning
Like a single bloom
Lost forever in the storm of life
My intentions
Like a sweeter room
Only bring to me a fading light

Locked up forever inside
I look to the stars and ask why
If they could just show these wounds how to heal
Here I am - oh why
My last stand - oh why
And I know For all the rising and falling there's nothing to show

Throw me down

It's been raining
And now I will pay
Woe is come to me

I am the lightning rod

I am waiting
On a mountaintop
Oh above me
He will strike me!

Locked up forever inside
I look to the stars and ask why
If they could just teach my dark heart to feel
All I am - oh why
My last stand - oh why
And I know
For all the rising and falling there's nothing to show
