Help is on The Way

lyrics

I'm bringing home the starlight
With no bottom in my pail
In tranquil worlds forgotten
with no tiger on our tail
Is it the dust I'm made of
That has me walking blind
You fill up and surround me
In the darkness of my mind

There's no one can oppose me
Make way I'm coming through
I'm walking through my falling down
Into the heart of you
You can have these worlds of splendor
That wrinkle and decay
I take my passion timeless
And help is on the way

CHORUS
Help is on the way
To the better part of me
Help is pushing sunlight
Through that ancient judas tree
From the compost of corruption
Comes the power to transform
All the worlds we'll ever know
You keep us cool you make us warm
You're the bending end of silence
My true serenity
You're the timeless heart inside my own
"Look, it's only me"
"Look, it's only me"

Help is on the way
Help is on the way
Dry your tears upon my heart
'cause it is only me and
"It is only me."
"It is only me."

To the dying gulf of Mexico
In the Fukushima rain
I can feel the mountains tremble
I know love will win again
No matter who opposes love
Love will find a way
To break our hearts and leave it smart
Upon the light of day
I've been hungry for the homeland
I've been gone for lifetimes now
I see the flames that flicker
In the fireplace tonight

I'm looking through the ever leaves
In the darkling of the night
From a place that is the future
My god it sure is bright

CHORUS
Help is on the way
To the better part of me
Help is pushing sunlight
Through that ancient judas tree
From the compost of corruption
Comes the power to transform
All the worlds we'll ever know
You keep us cool you make us warm
You're the bending end of silence
My true serenity
You're the timeless heart inside my own
"Look, it's only me."
"Look, it's only me."

Help is on the way
Help is on the way
Dry your tears upon my heart 'cause
"It is only me"
"It is only me"
"It is only me"

There's no one can oppose me
Make way I'm coming through
I'm walking through my falling down
Into the heart of you"
I've been drunk on wine and whiskey
I've been stoned and I've been shunned
But all of that's behind me now
I believe I've found the one

I took some lives and detours
As it took its time again
But I am on the near horizon now
On that you can depend
They've been taking bets about me
For several thousand years
You can't compute the agony
That ocean is my tears

CHORUS
And help is on the way
To the better part of me
Help is pushing sunlight
Through my ancient judas tree
From the compost of corruption
Comes the power to transform
All the worlds we'll ever know
You keep us cool you make us warm
You're the bending end of silence
My true serenity
You're the timeless heart inside my own
"Look, it's only me."
"Look, it's only me."

Help is on the way
Help is on the way
Dry your tears upon my heart
"It is only me."
"It is only me."
"It is only me."

What was it I was doing
As all this time went by
I was hiding in the underbrush
And now I don't know why
Now the moment is on us
As we see the living light
Make ashes from the darkness
My god it sure is bright

It's a strange intoxication
That I'm impatient for you now
As long as this has taken
I should be stoical somehow
But there's no way up around it
It could be a million years
But I would keep on a coming
'cause that's the death of fear

CHORUS
Yes, help is on the way
To the better part of me
Help is pushing sunlight
Through my ancient judas tree
From the compost of corruption
Comes the power to transform
All the worlds we'll ever know
You keep us cool you make us warm
You're the bending end of silence
My true serenity
You're the timeless heart inside my own
"Look it's only me."
"Look it's only me."
