Lyrics

My eyes seek reality
My fingers seek my veins
Thereís a dog at your back step
He must come in from the rain

I fall Ďcause Iíve let go
The net below has rot away
So my eyes seek reality
And my fingers seek my veins

The trash fire is warm
But nowhere safe from the storm
And I canít bear to see
What Iíve let me be
So wicked and worn

So as I write to you
Of what is done and to do
Maybe youíll understand
And you wonít cry for this man
ĎCause low man is due

Please forgive me

My eyes seek reality
My fingers feel for faith
Touch clean with a dirty hand
I touch the clean to the waste

The trash fire is warm
But nowhere safe from the storm
And I canít bear to see
What Iíve let me be
So wicked and worn

So as I write to you
Of what is done and to do
Maybe youíll understand
And wonít cry for this man
ĎCause low man is due

Please forgive me

So low, the sky is all I see
All I want from you is forgive me
So you bring this poor dog in from the rain
Though he just wants right back out again

And I cry to the alleyway
Confess all to the rain
But I lie, lie straight to the mirror
The one Iíve broken to match my face

The trash fire is warm
But nowhere safe from the storm
And I canít bear to see
What Iíve let me be
So wicked and worn

So as I write to you
Of what is done and to do
Maybe youíll understand
And wonít cry for this man
ĎCause low man is due

Please forgive me

So low, the sky is all I see
All I want from you is forgive me
So you bring this poor dog in from the rain
Though he just wants right back out again

My eyes seek reality
My fingers seek my veins
