One Child
(Radio edit)
One child stood before the altar
One child stood out in the rain
One child spent his time imagining
And I don't believe he's coming home again, home again, home a...

(chorus)
Right there in the earth, I've been drawing a line
I'm digging it deep, don't know if I'll find
A tunnel out so we all can be saved
If not, just take this earth and bury me, for this will be my grave

One child hid inside the darkness
One child never said a thing
One child closed his eyes and disappeared
But at night I still can hear him whispering, whispering, whisper...

(chorus)
Right there in the earth, I've been drawing a line
I'm digging it deep, don't know if I'll find
A tunnel out so we all can be saved
If not, just take this earth and bury me, for this will be my grave

(lead break/coda)
I will believe in you
If you still want me to
Or tell me I'm on my own
There on the other side
Tell me the Pilate's died
And we're no longer alone

(bridge)
Take your answers and your promises, believe me I don't care
I have held on to your words until I found them only air
What good are your promises if you can always take them back?
Still, I hang on every word till my hands are bleeding

(coda)
I will believe in you
If you still want me to
Or tell me I'm on my own
There on the other side
Tell me the Pilate's died
And we're no longer alone

(simultaneously)

I will believe in you      We had no choice but to stay and follow
If you still want me to    We have nothing left except tomorrow
Or tell me I'm on my own   We have nothing left except what will be
There on the other side    What we need here are some real decisions
Tell me the Pilate's died  While you only offer mindless visions
And we're no longer alone  Visions that nobody else here can see

Not What You See
(Radio edit)
No life's so short it can't turn around
You can't spend your life living underground
For from above you don't hear a sound
And I'm out here, waiting
I don't understand what you want me to be
It's the dark you're hating, it's not who I am
But I know that it's all that you see

No life's so short that it never learns
No flame so small that it never burns
No page so sure that it never turns
And I'm out here, waiting
I don't understand what you want me to be
It's the dark you're hating, it's not who I am
But I know that it's all that you see

(bridge)
Can you live your life in a day, putting every moment in play?
Never hear a word that they say as the wheels go around

Tell me if you win would it show - in a thousand years, who would know?
As a million lives come and go on this same piece of ground

(simultaneously)

Can you live your life in a day       I've been waiting
Putting every moment in play?
Never hear a word that they say       I don't understand what you want me to be
As the wheels go around
Tell me if you win would it show      It's the dark you're hating
In a thousand years, who would know?
As a million lives come and go        It's not who I am, but it is what you see
On this same piece of ground

(simultaneously)

1.
I've been waiting
I don't understand what you want me to be
It's the dark you're hating
It's not who I am, but it is what you see

2.
/Can you live your life in a day
Putting every moment in play?
/Never hear a word that they say
As the wheels go around
/Tell me if you win would it show
In a thousand years, who would know?
/As a million lives come and go
On this same piece of ground

3.
/Tell me would you really want to
See me leave this night without you
/Would you ever look about you
Wondering where we might be
/New York is so far away now
Tokyo, Berlin and Moscow
/Only dreams from here but somehow
One day that world we will see

(simultaneously again, except substitute this for stanza 1 and clip last three syllables
of the last line of stanzas 2 and 3)

1.
I don't understand
I don't understand
I don't understand
I don't understand
I don't understand
I don't understand
I don't understand
I don't understand...

(together, immediately)

...what I see.

(solo)

(coda)
I swear on tomorrow, if you take this chance
Our lives are this moment, the music - the dance
And here in this labyrinth of lost mysteries
I close my eyes on this night and you're all that I see

You're all that I see
