one for our fate
two for the meaning behind the wait
three with the helplessness
four more suffering
five find your burial
six sickly silent still

one for disease
two for the violence behind the breeze
three with the restlessness
four more profit there’s
five years or so till these
six thousand more fade to

I can barely hang on
live with voices inside my head
screaming no, please don’t go
yours was the face I dreamt of all along
yours was the face I dreamt of on every cold night

if everything must pass, I’ll live for it
if nothing remains I won’t regret this

when everything was wrong (know you were right)
yours was the face I dreamt of all along
yours was the face I dreamt of on my way out

all the light shines on for you

all the light shines on with you
all we hold like dust fades fast
(but love shines on in us)

a voice turns raw all by itself
it makes no sound
I felt it all
with my friends,

I found a home

tear down these walls
frail, still we wail
don’t be afraid
you’re not alone…

(lift this flesh)
lift this flesh up to love
believe in the light
and all that we can
shed this weight of self

lift this flesh to the fight
reject all their hate
the thorn in their hearts
shed the weight of self

lift these wilted wings and learn to fall
learn to lose hope, and still move on
learn the meaning of

I’ll stay with you

till the last notes chime
till the silence breaks
though the street’s lit up
though our hearts fail fast

last day with you I felt the ground give
way to the light of a million
stars burning hot
all within our
I’ll stay with you...
