Dead Again
by David Kraai

I didn't have anything to say, I just wanted you to look at me
Your bright lights have left us hopeless and the pain it will not go away
Poison tea has burned my palate to your kiss
And my drunken meanings, they are your worst wish
The black cloud has swelled up deep inside of you
And, baby, I need to know, "Will it come to this?
Are we back to this?" because...

We are almost dead again
We are nearly dead again
We are almost dead again
We are nearly dead again
Again, again

It was left out to be spoiled, like on that old road
So, now we try to see clearly between the sunlight and where all the darkness goes
I have lost my key and you have lost your water
So you can't get inside and I have no flowers
Our bodies are dying, perhaps holding on for life
So, look up baby and try to see the light
I think there might be just a little light, even if...

We are almost dead again
We are nearly dead again
We are almost dead again
We are nearly dead again
Again, again
