So Obscure

Every time you leave me,
I hate to see you go.
‘Cause every time you do,
You take the best of me.

No, no more letters.
No meeting of the minds.
There’s just no life with you,
And there’s no life without.

Yeah, you keep me hanging on
To a lyric in a song.
Oh, outside your doorway,
All there is is stone.

None of this is open.
None of this is clear.
All the ways are barred.
Why so obscure?

Oh, always outside!
Oh, always outside!
Oh, always, always...
Oh, always outside!

I’ll sit inside the cloisters,
Of my own design,
Surrounded by the things,
I will never change.

And I’m standing in their doorways,
I’m standing in the rain,
Blood upon the stonework,
Blood upon the frame.

Once I wanted something.
Once I had something to give.
Now it’s all just heartache.
Now it’s all just shame.

Oh, always outside!
Oh, always outside!
Oh, always, always...
Oh, always outside!

Repeat
