You shatter me your grip on me a hold on me 
So dull it kills 
You stifle me 
Infectious sense of 
Hopelessness and prayers for rain 
I suffocate 
I breathe in dirt 
And nowhere shines but desolate 
And drab the hours all spent on killing time 
Again all waiting for the rain 

You fracture me your hands on me a touch 
So plain so stale it kills 
You strangle me entangle me 
In hopelessness and prayers for rain 
I deteriorate, I live in dirt and nowhere glows but 
Drearily and tired the hours all spent on killing 
Time again all waiting for the rain

You fracture me, your hands on me, a touch 
So plain so stale it kills 
You strangle me, entangle me 
In hopelessness and prayers for rain 
Prayers for rain
Prayers for rain
Prayers for rain
