Standing firm on this stony ground
Another wind blows up, pulls these clothes around
I harbor all the same worries as most
Temptations to leave or to give up the ghost
I wrestle with an out-look on life
That shifts between darkness and shadowy line
I struggle with words I fear that they'll hear
That Orpheus sleeps on his back, still dead to the world
Sunlight falls my wings open wide
There's a beauty here I cannot deny
And models that tumble and crash on the stairs
Just so many people i knew never cared
Down below on the wreck of the ship
Our stronghold of pleasures I couldn't regret
The baggage is swallowed up by the tide
As Orpheus keeps to his promise
It stays by my side
Tell me, I've still a lot to learn
Understand
These fires never start
Believe me
When this joke is tired of laughing I will hear
The promise of my Orpheus sing
Long rest
Sleepers sleep as we row the boat
Just you and the web and I gave up hope
But all of the hurdles that fell in our laps
Fuel for the fire and straw for our backs
Still the voices have stories to tell
Of the power struggles in Heaven and Hell
But we feel secure against such mighty dreams
As Orpheus sings of the promise tomorrow may bring
Tell me, I've still a lot to learn
Understand
These fires never start
Please believe me
When this joke is tired of laughing I will hear
The promise of my Orpheus sing
