lyrics

I'm praying (my hands in the air)
Like crazy (‘cause I'm just a kid)
But what else is there to do
With your mojo except voodoo?

I'm faking (I’m so bad)
And fading (it's all past)
But what else is there to youth
Except everything that you lose?

Hanging in the darkness
Above the lost car
The imperfect parent in

The incomplete stars
But o god, so far, it's so far off

I'm waiting (o why not)
I'm saying (o please now)
But what else is there to truth
Except hearing what you want to?

And plowing toward nowhere
In the lost car
The imperfect instinct
In the incomplete heart
But o god, so far, it's so far off

And the water parting
For the lost car
The imperfect eyesight
In the incomplete dark
But o god, so far, it's so far off
