Alleviate
Lyrics:
Music:

The last thing she thing she ever said to me
Was "How do you keep a fool in suspense?"
I've been waiting for her phone call ever since
When early morning suppertime is the only one you'll know
You pick some dreams that make you let the others go

So I guess if this is paradise I've no room to complain
All that I could ever want so happily beneath me
So forgive this empty feeling though a tattered hope remains
If I could just communicate perhaps it would alleviate

So I ride out to meet my destiny
To make good on my mistake
A destruction or redemption in my wake
Could it be the only thing I need is simply just to see
The outcome is the bitch of being free

And I guess if this is paradise I've no room to complain
All that I could ever want so happily beneath me
So forgive this empty feeling though a tattered hope remains
If I could just communicate perhaps it would alleviate

Reckless I am chafing at restraints that make me wait
By sundown I should break free and escape
So remember me, try to believe that in some way I still care
I like to think I do, but from out there

And I guess if this is paradise I've no room to complain
All that I could ever want so happily beneath me
So forgive this empty feeling though a tattered hope remains
If I could just communicate perhaps it would alleviate
