lyrics

In my dreams I am dying
The birds are leaving my caved in chest
I know all colours by heart now
My voice is traveling freed in space

You are in my future
You are in my past

No one knows how old this pain is
Blazing within me, like a memory of mine
I grow younger in it's pale light
The love it takes to grow a life

I am in your future
I am in your past

He takes me in to take me out
He holds me up to bring me down
Oh, and I suck it up and I soak it in
leaving you to deal with it to deal with him
One by one you seize the fires
As they come rolling of her tongue
Cause always is how he believes
Leaves a rumble up her spine
It's in a plague that she creates
Bleeding out on paper
Hole by hole she shapes the truth
Into a darker blend to sing to
Making her high like towers and tight as fists
And after low and shallow, low and shallow

He takes me in to take me out
He holds me up to bring me down
I suck it up and I soak it in
Leaving you to deal with it, to deal with him

In my dreams I am dying
The birds are leaving my caved in chest
