lyrics

Somebody open my eyes
I must be dreaming
I can't believe that
I'm all alone out here
chasing a hole in the sky
haunted by deamons
begging for freedom
with a head full of doubt and fear

Hit like a cannonball
so I broke with the morning sun
didn't know what to do but run
to break my fall

Oh, oh bottle of sorrow take me home
back where I know the roads
I got all mixed up looking for a ghost
but she was never home

We've got the wisdom of years
can you help me reason
in the Garden of Eden
we all fight for air
pumping the pain
the the gears of greed
crushing our weak bones
to dust and despair

Nothing but open roads
can't seem to make a move
I can't even lift my shoes
forget my soul

Oh, oh bottle of sorrow take me home
back where I know the roads
I got all mixed up looking for a ghost
but she was never home
Now you're all I've got so I hold you close
won't ever let you go
Oh, oh bottle I think I'm losing hope
Won't you just take me home?
