lyrics

Oh me oh my oh- what a way to go
Swallowed by the avalanche I created with an echo
as a condition of my ambition
there's no end in sight- no bottom to my strife
to a hunger so great, it's eating me alive

I sought the wisdom of the prophets, poets and the saints
to help me solve the puzzle of the moth caught in between my screen and window pane
with a web weaving it's fate waiting on either side
and a hunger so great, it's eating me alive

you've got ashes in danger of falling over the edge of your cigarette
stories to unfold and be told but you don't want to waste your breath

Oh me oh my- what a way to die
I want a life to live, but I don't want to live a lie
My lips in it's grip, a lump in my lungs, my hands and tongue are tied
to this hunger so great, it's eating me alive
