all that you suffer is all that you are
all that you smother is all that you are
and you're seeing, you're seeing
you're seeing who you are
what takes meaning is cleaning
the meaning of who you are

on this seam
i will dream
on this seam

all of your struggles beneath your disguise
drink from the reasons that hold you alive
to ascend from the words of desire and pain
you must rise from the bounds of desire and shame

too late to discover peace of mind
too late to recover me

all you see and all you breathe
and all you cease to be
taking down your only son
and what he means to me
your dream will be
to dream with me

will you wait?
yes i'll wait
i will wait for you
will you wait?
yes i'll wait
i will wait for you

to cleanse your life takes more than time
take what you want
take all of me

too late to discover peace of mind
i've no peace of mind
too late to recover

all that you suffer is all that you are
all that you smother is all that you are
and you're feeling, you're feeling
you're feeling, you need yourself
and the ceiling comes down on your life
rings like a bell

on this seam
i will dream
on this seam

too late to struggle with all of your [?]
give up the names that you used to decide
and you're seeing, you're seeing
you're seeing just who you are
what takes meaning is cleaning
the meaning of who you are

too late to discover peace of mind
too late to recover me

on this seam
i will dream
on this seam

all that you suffer is all that you are
all you uncover is all that you are
and your head spins around
cause you don't even know what to do
and your head spins around
cause you're feeling here right through

too late to discover peace of mind
too late to recover
