You’ve said it once before

The mystery behind these walls

Lives within the cracks and

The breaks upon these weathered stones

And I know that you’ve done your fair share of

Chiseling away at all the distractions

That I have been setting up for

your persistent questioning

And endless games of playing

the victim to the point

Where I come undone

So it seems that there comes a time

Where we all fall in love

and then fall out of line

Seasons they change and time wears us all

By endlessly spinning our worlds back and forth

But here me now

Let it go

Let it rise above

Let it sink below

Cause its all the same to me

when you live your life in a fantasy

The knelling bell is ringing in your ears

All the things that you’ve come to fear

This is the consequence of a life you lead

Where tomorrow just seems obsolete

For love is a martyr and I am its ghost

Aimlessly wondering among these

Heavenly hosts in a failed attempt

To find someone better than you
