lyrics

As the fire is lit
The flames dance, eloquent
Like the writing on a page
Sensual yet superficial
An aesthetic existence
Fighting to be real
To exist, to coexist, to feel
But as the pyre burns ever slowly
And we return to our perch above
Embracing the flames
Forgetting what we once dreamt of
The flames dance in a waltz around us
As we sit content
Burning in the wreckage

Oh the silence
Oh the silence
It beckons me
Oh the shadows
Oh the shadows
Make it hard to see what I want to be
All the pictures
All the pictures
Burn in effigy
All the black smoke
Of the ashes makes
It hard to breathe
But I want to believe

I am a ghost of me
And you are losing time
Slowly

But I will still fight
I'll never stop fighting
Even if it kills me
But I will still hope
I'll never stop holding on
Even if I die

But I'll see the light
I'll never stop searching
Even if I'm blind
And I will come home
I'll never stop until I find it
Just to see you again
