Gaping Hole

lyrics

Can you fill it?
Can you fill it?
The gaping hole.

Can you fix it?
Can you fix it?
The gaping hole.

I tried for so very long
but still somehow I get it wrong
the gaping hole.

It stares at me so viciously
It torments me so deliciously
my gaping hole.

Can you fill it?
Can you fill it?
The gaping hole.
(gaping hole)

Can you fix it?
Can you fix it?
The gaping hole.
(gaping hole)

I’m acting out all over the place
I’m acting out, it’s such a disgrace
Don’t think I have what it takes
to escape from
this gaping hole, this gaping hole.

And
It don’t matter
It don’t matter
Whether you’re in
or out
Of my life
Either way I’m pouring out,
I’m pouring out
I’m pouring out
Of this gaping hole.

Can you fill it?
Can you fill it?
The gaping hole.
(gaping hole)

Can you fix it?
Can you fix it?
The gaping hole.
(gaping hole)

our wholeness has been ripped from us
our faith, our trust our G-dly lust
piece by piece it has eroded
and all that’s left is a gaping hole, a gaping hole

And
It don’t matter
It don’t matter
Whether you’re in
or out
Of my life
Either way I’m pouring out, I’m pouring out, I’m pouring out
of this gaping hole.
And
It don’t matter
It don’t matter
Whether you’re in
or out
Of my life
Either way I’m pouring out
(it’s not you) (I thought it was you) (it never was you.)
(it don’t matter)
either way I’m pouring out, I’m pouring out, I’m pouring out
Of this gaping hole. (gaping hole)

And
It don’t matter
It don’t matter
Whether you’re in
or out
Of my life
