lyrics

Just like an ember from a flame I watched you flow through the wind, and I could never decide if you come from saints or a sin. Loss of will of life, this blood turns to white (As your light flickers away, into a matter of grey). This reflection suffers on, so tell me I‘ll save myself tonight (as you echo through the air, you’ll join the soil to lay bare). Scream to the skies, it’s on the underside of my eyelids tonight (Smoke is turning me white). Clenched teeth, bloodshot eyes (You won’t know). My heart is trembling (Right back, go back to the start). This heart is weighed down, won’t let another beat out (Particles, they have no consciousness). These walls are growing out of control (And our genetic makeup, it has no emotional ties). Scream to the skies, it’s on the underside of my eyelids tonight (Smoke is turning me white). Clenched teeth, bloodshot eyes (You won’t know). My heart is empty and these sentences they pour, there’s blood all up these walls tonight. Right back, we’ll go back to the start.
