lyrics

The rug is out now
out from underneath of me
but I’m still walking
wondering what’s underneath my feet
and the floor, and the house and the earth beneath that
when there’s nothing below me
I walk on air I cross the void
I look down and what I see
emptiness, life without, makes no sense

The rug has been out
from under me before
but this is different
a whole new feeling to explore
How I move, shift my weight, from my left to my right
let my toes grip to balance
I walk on air I cross the void
I look down and what I see
emptiness, life without, makes no sense

So what am I gripping when
I put my weight down
if the rug is out from under me?
maybe I’ll stop wondering for while
floating so numb grief will keep me up
and in a year or so come back down

But I don’t want to be numb
lose my grip as I lose her
keep me on this earth
dig my heels down, carve with my bare hands
where comfort is where life begins
and where death goes to live
again so this is why
the rug comes out from under us so
naked we put our soles on the ground
so we are born and so we die
naked we put our souls in the ground
and where death goes to live
this is why
