lyrics

If you show me your mind, can I read it?
Will you look me in the eye once I've seen it?

Shadows pass over your hollowed-out mouth
as you're sleeping--
holding the lies you gave me and I have been keeping,
catching the salt that falls from my eyes as I'm weeping

Hope is the language I spoke to you when I belonged here
beneath the cracks of the doors we couldn't fit under
lying awake in our bed, I forgot what our names were

You're a thin man, air child
you're a thin man running wild
you're a thin man running wild
you're a thin man running wild

I know where you are but I can't touch you
when you are dreaming
your mind is the air
and my body's the stone it is carving
and the night is always so loud
when it moves in around me

You're a thin man, air child
you're a thin man running wild
you're a thin man running wild
you're a thin man running wild
you're a thin man running wild
