Lyrics

all the worlds that we possess
are slipping thru our hands
chances are we'll not return
to know or understand
but from the same self ether springs
the flowers of which your garden grows
as the gods breathe their sweetened breath
upon the backs of us all

can you feel it?
in your bones
can you feel it?
on your own

i am just a question mark
hanging on the wall
choke me back with inspirations
too numerous to care
come on in the water's warm
we're waiting for you now
take the plunge you can't escape
the feelings if you dare

can you feel it?
in your bones
can you feel it?
on your own

and on my own, i can't escape you all
and on my own, i can't escape you all
and on my own, i can't escape you all

everything i give to you
i give it for myself
everything i need from you
i need it for myself
everything i take from you
i take it for myself
everything i want from you
i want it for myself

can you feel it?
in your bones
can you feel it?
on your own

and on my own, i can't escape you all
and on my own, i can't escape you all
'cause on my own, i can't escape you all
and on my own, i can't escape you all
not at all
not at all
not at all
