Bury me softly in this womb
I give this part of me for you
Sand rains down and here I sit
Holding rare flowers
In her tomb...in bloom

Down in a hole and I don't know if I can be saved
See my heart I've decorated like a grave
You don't understand who they
Thought I was supposed to be
Look at me now a man
Who won't let himself be


Down in a hole, losin my soul
Down in a hole, losin control
I'd like to fly...
But my wings have been so denied

Down in a hole and they've put all
The stones in their place
I've eaten the sun so my tongue
Has been burned of the taste
I have been guilty
Of kicking myself in the teeth
I will bring no more
Of my feelings beneath


Down in a hole, losin my soul
Down in a hole, losin control
I'd like to fly....
But my wings have been so denied


Bury me softly in this womb (Oh I want to be inside of you)
I give this part of me for you (Oh I want to be inside of you)
Sand rains down and here I sit
Holding rare flowers (Oh I want to be inside of you)
In her tomb...in bloom (Oh I want to be inside...)


Down in a hole, losin my soul
Down in a hole, feelin so small
Down in a hole, losin my soul
Down in a hole, out of control
I'd like to fly...
But my Wings have been so denied...
