Lyrics
Deep within your heart you're sick
The feelin's gone - the road's too slick
Your face has changed - it's rearranged
There's no way out you cry

But I know better than ya do
The lies ya tell - they all are true
About your trips through paper clips
You're hung up on the sky

Oh and though it's not for me to say
About the thoughts you thought today
I can only promise you that everything I said is true
There's nothin left for you to do but fly....

Fly away and hope the sky enfolds you
Fly away don't say I never told you

The clothes you wore you've burned them all
And naked now it's hard to crawl
To find relief from pseudo-grief
The table's turnin' fast

While tears of joy have turned to blood
You're sinkin deeper in the mud
And the more ya scream it's just a dream
The darkness comes at last
Oh and though it's not for me to say
About the thoughts you thought today
I can only promise you that everything I said is true
There's nothin left for you to do but fly....

Fly away and hope the sky enfolds you
Fly away don't say I never told you
