lyrics

I don't know if I've been right
but I think it's safe to say I've been wrong
I don't know if the day will come
but the night sure as hell has been long

I've lost a lot, but I've still got
an empty cup, I hold it up
Nothing, nothing, nothing
of more worth

I don't know about blind optimists
open their eyes I guess, and get depressed
but I will take my chances
Cause I don't pray or click my heels,
I just look around and try to steal
god's sideways glances

I've lost a lot, but I've still got
an empty cup, I hold it up
Nothing, nothing, nothing
of more worth

Maybe faith always dies in the air
it's not a blind leap if you know
just where you want to land
Now the whole world is split by your line in the sand
but the truth won't fit on the side that you stand
It don't mean shit, anybody can be certain
Maybe god bows to your command,
borrows your words and moves with your hands,
but how do you hide from yourself behind that curtain?

I've lost a lot, but I've still got
an empty cup, I hold it up
Nothing, nothing, nothing, nothing…

And I don't beg because I do or I don't believe
And I don't beg because I will or I won't receive
Nothing, Nothing comes first
I don't beg because there's water
I beg because there is thirst
