lyrics

when the cold came with the fall
i watched the death of leaves and all
i thought that i’d never last the winter

but as the ice is melting down
i stand with both feet on the ground
then the memories bring me to my knees

it came as no surprise
the illness came with appetite
hungry for my legs and then my body

and as my knees were growing weak
they heard me singing in my sleep
a melody to take me through the night

i guess it only was a matter of time
now i’m staring at the ceiling
i thank the lord that i’m still breathing,
thinking, “when did i get so desperate?”

so i slept in that hotel
full of patients like myself
waiting for a visitor or a ride to take me home

though i find the more time that i wait
it seems the more pills i have to take
but they do wonders to alleviate the pain

as the tree begets the seed
there was an illness born in me
my father fell before me, he swore i would fall, too

as i lie to rest my head
i feel it creeping back again
it knows i would never sleep alone

and what it wasn’t wasn’t really what i thought it was
