lyrics

I've forgotten how to say "no way"
Don't hold my hand you firebrand
My bed of ice will cool you and cast you loose
So soft-headed as to think "have a drink"
My kingdom has come
My will is undone
You're sky, I'm scum
We'll screw this world away
One more beauty in the flame, unashamed
She's young, she's strong yet dragged along
The leash so long is tightened by the day
Love the landscape, even as it turns red
Give a whistle to all the old tunes
Listed, lost and undead
To the martyrs, to the victims of bright shiny midnights
Know no better, pain is love and you'll find that I am gone
If I could dry off, we could always sit close
Bottled up here, I'm a memory at most
If you could know what my heart is capable of
You'd find your wings girl, and sail sober enough without me.
Hardly marching
I'm kind of running in place
