lyrics

like the darkness gives in to the dawn
and the carcass surrenders to the ground
or the silence begs mercy from the sound
I stand before you with my arms laid down
for your forgiveness soaked in gasoline,

I took the long way home and dropped back into town
to pay my respects to our haunted battle ground
under the spell of those whispering bells
the ghosts of 7th street, the secrets they’d tell
about our bodies and the distance in between,

shining machete among the lillies of the rain
they flocked to you like moths to a flame
your heart was broken, my was tied up in your chains
nocturnal animals seeking refuge from the rain
in the pages of some dirty magazine

but who could ever see through
your little smoke and mirror shrine
from your side of the finishing line

so like the darkness gives in to the dawn
and the carcass surrenders to the ground
or the silence begs mercy from the sound
I stand before you with my arms laid down
for your forgiveness soaked in gasoline,

but who could ever see through
your little smoke and mirror shrine
from your side of the finishing line
