What Have They Done to Me

[Zwan]

 

Lyrics

what have they done to me
to the air that i breathe and all i see
diseased and abused and never free
tell me what have they done to me

they took everything i had
and crushed it all to dust
erased all my names so that i would seem so alone
so alone
so alone

i pull from myself from my wonder
to wander through the night
i'm a long, long way from emptiness
so step aside

am i to feel alive
am i to feel alive
am i to feel alive
but i nearly died
am i to feel alive
am i to feel alive
but i cried for so long
so long

what have they done to me
to the birds that sing and the simple things
i held all my curses and i can't seem to rest
but it's all right, it's all right

they took from me all that one could take
my children, my loves, my orchards of tears
it's all been borrowed so we must say
they sit in the kingdom of light
now you know how one can be
as free as one can want to be
'cause time won't let you walk away
time won't let you be afraid
don't be afraid for too long
for too long

am i to walk alone
am i to walk alone
am i to walk alone
but i nearly died
am i to see the light
am i to see the light
but i cried
am i to walk alone
am i to walk alone
am i to walk alone
but i'm far from home
am i to walk alone
am i to walk alone
but i'm far from home
am i to see the light
am i to see the light
am i to see the light
but i nearly died
am i to see the light
am i to see the light
but i nearly died
yeah, i nearly died
am i to walk alone
am i to walk alone
but i nearly died
yeah, i'm almost home
for so long
