Lyrics
It's a hell of a long ways up
From the bottom to the top
You've had personal experience
Handling deliverance
Come on, come on
Why don't we talk about that?
Why don't we talk about it?

I know that it's absurd
But I hear you've got a way with words
Help me see my way clear
Accompany me out of here
Come on, come on
Why don't we talk about that?
Why don't we talk about it?

You're the echo in the chamber of my heart
I had wrestled with oblivion 'til she let me in
You weren't part of the equation but I've got to laugh
Deconstruct me from within
And when you feel those violent earthquakes start
Come on
Tear me apart
Tear me apart
I don't know where I'll end or where you'll start
Tear me apart

Now you may not be
All I've set you up to be
Yes I've made my share of mistakes
Can't i get an even break
What do you think?
Why don't we talk about that?
Come on let's talk about it

I have walked the world blind
Maybe I still do time to time
I was schooled to believe
If you give I shall receive
What do you say?
Why don't we talk about that
Come on let's talk about it

You're the echo in the chamber of my heart
I had wrestled with oblivion 'til she let me in
You weren't part of the equation
But I've got to laugh
Deconstruct me from within
And when you feel those
Violent earthquakes start
Come on, come on
Tear me apart
Tear me apart
Come on, come on
I don't know where I'll end
Don't care where you'll start
Tear me apart
