about

This tiny insistent internal voice grew louder and more impatient until I listened. Then the church lost its grip on me.

lyrics

And I know that inside you you can hear my voice
And I know that inside you you hear me
And I know that inside you you can hear my voice
And I know that inside you you hear

One lifetime I woke and I found I was tin
So easily swayed I buckled in the wind
And this is the way that I lived my life
I gave to the wind and it broke me

And my eyes have been blinded, my uniform’s thin
And my hair has been dyed neutral grey
And I’m marching in single file, silent and grim
And the nightingale flies on her way

One lifetime I woke and I found I was blood
I felt every touch, I could be passionate
And this is the way that I lived my life
I turned to the wind and it fed me

And my blood has been dripping since I said I’d stay
And I’m slashing my wrists on my knees
And I lift up my head, screaming, Take me away!
To the nightingale sailing her breeze

And I know that inside you you can hear my voice
And I know that inside you you hear me
And I know that inside you you can hear my voice
And I know that inside you you hear

One lifetime I woke and I found I was stone
I stuck to my guns, the earth was my throne
And this is the way that I lived my life
I threw out the wind and it healed me

And my eyes have been opened, the paint is all dry
And my chains will melt off if I run
And I finally see that I know how to fly
And the nightingale shows me the sun

And I know that inside you you can hear my voice
And I know that inside you you hear me
And I know that inside you you can hear my voice
And I know that inside you you hear
