All the shadows, all the time, call me to them,
Out from the light as I lay buried, burning in time.
She was the setting, the weapon, the crime.
I am legend, I am the end.
These are the killers, they were my friends call me by name,
To take my life, gone mad with hunger, but not tonight, they will not have me,
Before I die they've come for me, my blood their prize the voices curse me,
Throughout the night, eyes like lit arrows, fired through the sky.
Every evil that I've ever known, every voice I was ever shown stalks me at my window, claws at my window.
I raise the record player to drown the screams,
I black the windows so I cannot see and I face eternity alone -
This is my life minutes click like prison bars inside
Throughout the night keep track the seconds in my flesh.
To clear my mind I keep the cure to my own curse, kept at my side
And reality haunts each breath I own
Escape through my minds back door or the path just down the road.
This house haunted, my sins phantoms, sinners graveyard bleeds through my spine.
Six feet by my own hand my own bed to lie in six silver pills in to save my mind.
Angel of mercy whispers in my ear, promising everything I'd ever want to hear,
Pointing the way passed tattered leather bounds,
Towards a promised unseen light via unholy ground...
Her name was sunset, she wore no eyes.
Her name, in pain, in stone signed.
Crimson, marble, midnight sky.
We once stood as towers with a summer nights shine
But there were answers to questions I just could not find,
Questions burning like bridges,
Like my bridge to you weighing wings down like ballast
And stinging like the truth there'll be time,
In the end to remember this too a long road lies ahead but only for you.
So remember me fondly and I'll do the same
These memories a treasure buried deep inside my brain.
See I've done this too often, and I've none left to spend
But an empty chests life, is not one to live
I'm not angry, I don't blame you and I hope that you see
That I'll cherish this short time, like the stars above the trees
This life is an ocean and I'm lost at sea
This life is an ocean and it's drowning me
