Hoodoo

Lyrics

Come into my life
Regress into a dream
We will hide
And build a new reality

Draw another picture
Of a life you could have had
Follow your instincts
And choose the other path

You should never be afraid
You're protected
From trouble and pain
Why, why is this a crisis
In your eyes again

Come to be
How did it come to be?
Tied to a railroad
No love to set us free
Watch our souls fade away
And our bodies crumbling
Don't be afraid

I will take the blow for you

And I've had recurring nightmares
That I was loved for who I am
And missed the opportunity
To be a better man

Extra information

Meaning

Matt: this song was completely piano based, and sounded very classical, and almost ended up as one of the 5 songs that didn't make the album, which also a bit sounded like the piano part on "Butterflies & Hurricanes"; It would be cool to have an album with that, but we aren't ready for that. So it wouldn't make the album, but I started playing it on the guitar one day, and it sounded a bit Flamenco. So we thought it would make a good song for the end of the album.
