The Cave
It's empty in the valley of your heart<br />
The sun, it rises slowly as you walk<br />
Away from all the fears and all the faults<br />
You've left behind.<br />
<br />
The harvest left no food for you to eat<br />
You cannibal, you meat-eater, you see<br />
But I have seen the same<br />
I know the shame in your defeat<br />
<br />
But I will hold on hope<br />
And I won't let you choke<br />
On the noose around your neck<br />
<br />
And I'll find strength in pain<br />
And I will change my ways<br />
I'll know my name as it's called again<br />
<br />
'Cause I have other things to fill my time<br />
You take what is yours and I'll take mine<br />
Now let me at the truth<br />
Which will refresh my broken mind<br />
<br />
So tie me to a post and block my ears<br />
I can see widows and orphans through my tears<br />
I know my call despite my faults<br />
And despite my growing fears<br />
<br />
So come out of your cave walking on your hands<br />
And see the world hanging upside down<br />
You can understand dependence<br />
When you know the maker's land<br />
<br />
So make your siren's call<br />
And sing all you want<br />
I will not hear what you have to say<br />
<br />
'Cause I need freedom now<br />
And I need to know how<br />
To live my life as it's meant to be<br />
<br />
And I will hold on hope<br />
And I won't let you choke<br />
On the noose around your neck<br />
<br />
And I'll find strength in pain<br />
And I will change my ways<br />
I'll know my name as it's called again
