LyricsEdit

Dreams stripped down beyond firelight
I would go over but my only coat's off white
And seeing things unreal
God knows what that stained and what comes crawling back again
Tears are harbored Down to the thorny altar
I'm afraid I might fade away

Here's to the blood we sing and burn
A thousand blackbirds on a string return
Where's a solitary sun? Too high
Gone without the chosen one, goodbye
Ashes scattered, burning Jacob's ladder
I'm afraid I might fade away

Here's to the blood we sing and burn
A thousand blackbirds on a string return
Where's the solitary sun? Too high!
Gone without the chosen one, goodbye!

Here's to the blood we sing and burn
A thousand blackbirds on a string return
Where's a solitary sun? Too high
Gone without the chosen one, goodbye
Rage untethered, the soul a stony desert
I'm afraid I might fade away

Dreams stripped down beyond firelight
I would go over but my only coat's off white
And seeing things unreal
God knows what that stained and what comes crawling back again
Ashes scattered, burning Jacob's ladder
I'm afraid I might fade away
