lyrics

well st. anthony, i'm slipping
i've gotta learn to walk with a rope tied round my waist
if i insist on digging up every past mistake

and resurrection's a scary thing when it sneaks up on you
maybe the tomb should stay closed
'cause ghosts aren't for talking to but

st. anthony
there seems to be something i've lost
and it's staring me square in the face.
and st. anthony
can you take a moment's pause
and sift through what can still be saved?

well i thought i saw a rooftop, covered in snow
but it was only made of steel reflecting light in the sun
and i could use nerves of steel now 'cause i'm coming undone

and sometimes there's bridges to burn
but what if you burn the wrong one?
well you'd better be a good swimmer in the long run and

st. anthony
there seems to be something i've lost
and it's staring me square in the face.
and st. anthony
can you take a moment's pause
and sift through what can still be saved?
