Show Me How To Live Lyrics.
And with the early dawn, Moving right along, I couldn’t buy an eyeful of sleep.
And in the aching night, Under satellites, I was not received.
Built with stolen parts, A telephone in my heart, Someone get me a priest.
To put my mind to bed, This ringing in my head, Is this a cure or is this a disease.
(Chorus) Nail in my hand, From my creator, You gave me life , Now show me how to live. (twice)
And in the after birth, On the quiet earth, Let the stains remind you.
You thought you made a man, You better think again, Before my role defines you.
And in your waiting hands, I will land, And roll out of my skin.
And in your final hours I will stand,
Ready to begin. (4 times)
