The Stranger

Tired of wasting precious time praying for the rain,
Rip away my innocence, take away the pain,
Everyday I fantasize, sad enough but true,
Dreaming of a better life, outside the tomb...

Wizened, the expressionless faces made of clay,
Color ground to monochrome, dirty shades of Grey,
Counting our tomorrows like all our yesterdays
Carbon copies thrown around, rewind, erase...

Talk to me now.... Talk to the stranger,
Turn a shrouded face to the light,
Burn beyond this place to another world
Talk to me now...talk to the stranger
Talk to me now.... Talk to the stranger,
Throw this isolation a line,
Don't deny this taste of another, girl
Talk to me now...talk to the stranger

I could give her everything if she has the key
She who holds this beating heart, tears it out of me
Patience is a lonely sound, now it's wearing thin,
Loosing my control around this fire within...

Talk to me now.... Talk to the stranger,
Turn a shrouded face to the light,
Burn beyond this place to another world
Talk to me now...talk to the stranger
Talk to me now.... Talk to the stranger,
Throw this isolation a line,
Don't deny this taste of another, girl
Talk to me now...talk to the stranger
