crying from outside lyrics – tear garden

this beating heart is yours to break.
take your sacrifical knife and cut.
this lamb was born to slaughter
but i’m lying on your altar,
stilll i stare at you
with big brown sheepy eyes.
i’d like to blow a kiss goodbye.
can you help me?
but you pulled away…
so i kicked away my chains and
threw a line out to the crowd
shouting “pull me in, please take me in…”
i’ll try to understand.
i’ll keep my questions in a can
and my hands inside my pocket –
if you like you can lock it.
i won’t look you in the eye –
will you help me?
but they pulled away…
and now i’m floating in a box without a window
so i try leaning on the wall but it crumbles.
so i stumble to the floor but it liquifies,
transforms itself into nothing.
i want nothing.
is that so very much to ask?
but she pulls away…
