Through these shadows you’ve always heard their voices
Their strange and crystal notions and the choices
And it was never how you meant to be
It never went this way
And the sights that you will never see
The words you cannot say
Meet within the corners of your heart

These missing links
They hold you down
Keep you from the songs
You’d love to sing
These missing links
They hold you down
Silencing the messages
You bring

In the darkness you always hear them calling
Creeping and crawling and gnawing and pawing
For the life that they will never live
You always meant so well
The gifts that they will never give
The ringing funeral bell
Closes the final page of wasted life

These missing links
They hold you down
Keep you from the songs
You’d love to sing
These missing links
They hold you down
Silencing the messages
You bring

Through the shadows you’ve always heard their voices
Their strange and crystal notions and the choices
And it was never how you meant to be
It never went this way
And the sights that you will never see
The words you cannot say
Meet within the corners . . .

Of broken hearts
