I heard it said,
"I am the way
I am the truth
And I am the life, you see,
Maybe the life you could live for me."
How d'you know?
How d'you see?
How d'you feel?
No warm seat, no fingerprints,
Nothing to touch,
No air to breathe.

Bread of Life
I'm hungry now
But I can't find you.

I grew tired
Weary times
Searching all the time
Full of rage
Full of love
Full of doubt
Angry with it all
Kick over the market stalls!
A man like me? Personality cult?
Is it me? Am I the one?
Rehash the book
And sell it on Amazon.

Bread of Life
I'm hungry now
But I can't find you.

Cleanse the mind, wash the brain,
Erase those thoughts, wipe them clean.
Double-speak, treble-think, which is it?
Still loitering in the void,
Hanging back, wisdom stalled,
I recoil
And yet I yearn, but
Listen for the whisper that's far too quiet.
A trick of light
You are the light
It's dark in here, am I so blind
I cannot see?

Steel helmet surrounds my head
I fear life and I fear death,
I want it now, don't wish to wait

...renewal takes too long
Renewal takes too long
Renewal takes far too long...

Bread of Life
I'm hungry now
But I can't find you.
I'm the one
Who raps the door
- it never opens.

Bread of Life
I'm hungry now
But I can't find you.
