One on the Ground

This song is by Coalesce and appears on the album Give Them Rope (1998).

She's got one foot on the ground.
That's one more than before her day.
Just crawl back and swallow your pride like so many pills before this.
Girl speak you must know something more.
I know that you must feel something for your presence is coming chilly.
Your motions sadly sober now.
Please let yourself cry.
Prove your miserable existence and I'll believe.
I'll confess my sin. Choking on the manipulation of another.
Roaming on the plane of no bother.
The child spoke the truth.
"I can't believe I'm dead." So why bother us now.
You knew everything except the price of haste,
So hold your breath to hold his hand.
I'm here so where are you?
Everything was lost overhead.
Above the mantle in the depression.
Not a single memory to burn in this betrayal.
At least nothing that I can reach.
I am still standing, still staring at your child rolling,
Playing in your husband's stain.
Would you make a token for your son of what's left of his teeth pried from the plaster.
If he found the weakness to surrender to pain,
Can you find the strength to search for him.
I am here so where are you.
I am still here and I need you.
