lyrics

i am here but i
am not here i am
without you even though i'm
with you all the time

you are here but i
am not here i am
somewhere else even though i
am right here beside

it's not a drink
not pharmacology
that gets me up so high
it's something tight
a rope into the sky
and you sleep while i climb

i am up here i
cannot see you now
gone are the bed and the sheets
gone is the time

and the words don't rhyme
but they are scanning
so they spill out of my mouth
while you are tongue-tied

is it the way
we smell the blood on him?
in his beard on his coat?
i know he knows
he's got us by the throat
though you try to deny

it's not the drink
is what i wanna think
i speak into his eyes
he sees us now
he saw it all along
i run to you hide

wasn't there i was
never there i was
always without you
