Drifting in and out
See the road you're on

You came rolling down the cheek
You say just what you need
And in between
It's never as it seems

Help me to make it
Help me to make it

If you built yourself a myth
You'd know just what to give

What comes after this
Momentary bliss
The consequence
Of what you do to me

Help me to make it
Help me to make it

Found yourself in a new direction
Aeons far from the sun
Can you come?
Would they come to breach you?
Let you know you're not the only one

You can't keep hangin' on
To all that's dead and gone

If you built yourself a myth
You'd know just what to give
Do you lie?
Oh, let the ashes fly

Help me to make it
Help me to make it

    It's a girl singing about or to her man, but she knows he's really not hers. Thats why he came rolling down her cheek, her tears. He's built a myth that he's available but hes not because hes married. He does this because hes so unhappy with his marriage and sex life so he lies to her so that he can sleep with her and that's the momentary bliss and what this all does to her because he only gives her what he wants to to fill his needs and keep his lies from her. She's telling him he can't keep hanging on to what's dead and gone meaning his marriage. Do you lie meaning keep the lies going to her or do you let the ashes fly meaning get out of the marriage.

    I think the lines, 'you can't keep hanging on / to all that's dead and gone' indicate that she's saying to give up the fantasy. I thought maybe this song was about realizing that you've believed in something that wasn't real (perhaps a false love), and how it feels to find out you were mistaken.
