lyrics

Lyrics:
It's been so long
Since these haggard hands
Touched another's beating heart
The calloused skin
Cover all and every option

Casting the longest shadow
I wither while you grow

The waking world falls apart
When my head hits my heart
Dreams carry my real intention
The perfection of my own invention
You will never be welcome here
And now I hear the sound
A siren song
Running us aground

Voices guide us
But cover your ears
You can never change
What we have done, over the years
So for once
Ignore the noise
The constant degradation

You've stolen me
In a whisper


Breaking the silence with the noise
Blindly following your voice

So Alone
Finding a way
To show that I have grown
Cutting free
The ropes
The binds that tie me down
The words we never wrote
Trying to cope
With the endless echoes and
The voices in my head

Voices guide us
But cover your ears
You can never change
What we have done, over the years

Sound waves at low tide
Yet we hear nothing ashore
Hushed tones echo
But they're inaudible
And won't carry the weight of
Me
Silence drowned out by my heartbeat

A rush of blood to my memory
The pain I tried so hard to bury
I tore it out
But I can still hear the beating
I was left defeated
Your rise begins my fall
When will I ever let go?

Voices guide us
But cover your ears
You can never change
What we have done over the years

So for once ignore the noise
The constant degradation
Anxiety and separation
The clarity of our division
A grip on my heart
Hatred buried in my skin
Kept a secret
At the cost of everything
It isn't over
Until I let go of the past
It isn't over
Because my life will last
Because my life will last
