Crawl
(music and lyrics copyright P. R. Oristaglio)

Verse A1
I move…..I crawl
I lift …….I fall

Verse B1
When will it be time to forgive?
Under a rock there’s (this?) room where I live
In this cold place I’m showered with scorn
There’s dirt on my face forsaken forlorn

Verse A2
I shake…I’m torn
I shout…this song

Bridge A1
Where I lie, lie, lie
Where I lie, lie, lie
I sooth….my soul

From my black tongue, where I lie
My black tongue, where I lie
I prove….my worth

Verse B2
You should understand that’s not the norm
Ever so quick the bitterness formed
No 2nd chances why do you want
Me to regret the day I was born

Verse A3
I don’t…belong
I know…I’m wrong

Bridge A2
When I lie, lie, lie
With my black tongue
When I lie
With my black tongue
When I lie
When I lie, lie, lie

Verse A4
I’m strung… along
I’m weak…you’re strong

Verse B4
I can’t stand tall
I bounce off a wall
Sliding away
I skid and I crawl

Verse B4a
I lost….my role
It’s gone…I’m told

Bridge B1
In my cave, where I lie
In my cave, where I lie
I’m spurned…I’m warned

Verse C1
Stalactite horns hang like a thorn
Up from the ground Stalagmite forms
I stare at the ceiling, limestone adorns
And pity myself but I stare too long
I learn….I mourn

Ending
Crushed like a grape squashed like a bug
But when you kill a mosquito you see your own blood
Won’t be together paradise lost
Caste out forever on my belly I crawl

Chorus
I crawl………….
I crawl, crawl, crawl, crawl, crawl, crawl, crawl
I crawl………….
I crawl, crawl, crawl, crawl, crawl, crawl, crawl
Craw-a-awl
