♫ Where do we go from here? ♫

0:21

♫ How do we carry on? ♫

0:24

♫ I can't get beyond the questions ♫

0:31

♫ Clambering for the scraps ♫ ♫ in the shatter of us, collapsed ♫

0:37

♫ It cuts me with every could have been ♫

0:45

♫ Pain on pain on play, repeating ♫

0:49

♫ With the backup, makeshift life in waiting ♫

0:59

♫ Everybody says ♫ ♫ time heals everything ♫

1:11

♫ What of the wretched hollow? ♫ ♫ The endless in between? ♫

1:20

♫ Are we just going to wait it out? ♫

1:23

♫ There is nothing to see here now ♫

1:26

♫ Turning the sign around ♫

1:29

♫ We're closed to the Earth 'til further notice ♫

1:36

♫ A crumbling cliche case ♫ ♫ crumpled and puffy faced ♫

1:42

♫ caught dead in the stare of a thousand miles ♫

1:50

♫ All I want, only one street level miracle ♫

1:56

♫ I'll be an out and out born again ♫ ♫ from none more cynical ♫

2:01

♫ Everybody says ♫ ♫ that time heals everything ♫

2:13

♫ But what of the wretched hollow? ♫ ♫ The endless in between? ♫

2:22

♫ Are we just going to wait it out? ♫ ♫ And sit here cold? ♫

2:29

♫ We will be long gone by then ♫

2:32

♫ In lackluster ♫

2:34

♫ In dust we lay around old magazines ♫

2:38

♫ Fluorescent lighting sets the scene ♫

2:41

♫ for all we could and should be being ♫

2:45

♫ in the one life that we've got ♫

2:52

♫ Everybody says ♫

2:59

♫ time heals everything ♫

3:05

♫ And what of the wretched hollow? ♫

3:11

♫ The endless in between? ♫

3:14

♫ Are we just going to wait it out? ♫

3:21

♫ Just going to sweat it out? ♫

3:27

♫ Just going to sweat it out? ♫

3:35

♫ Wait it out ♫ (Applause)
