Lyrics

The quickening is an ephemeral thing that only happens
in the dark like catching light in a jar
And the paint that it brings is just the promise of Spring - it's madness on the wing
Oh what does it mean to come alive? To come alive! To come alive!
The entering is soulful conjecturing
*Oh lost and by the wind grieved ghost come back to me again
Because the way she bleeds is in the law that he reads -
confusing words and deeds
So what does it mean to come alive? To come alive! To come alive!
To pierce the vein of the sacred and profane
Poor science in the service of a faith
But who will bear the mark of Cain?
To come alive! To come alive! To come alive!

*Thomas Wolfe from Look Homeward Angel

And there's nowhere to roam
The lights are all on but nobody's home
