The Still Tempest

lyrics

Within this instant
The moon is but pathetic slivers on my Earth
The storm was hell
Oh, but the calm was worse

Using you up like the flame uses trees
Never saw my fate lie with your expertise
These pills I take, yeah, they do stop the ache
But I couldn't really say they took the pain away

What you tell me I couldn't ever repeat
And if she can't need me, then, well
I'll watch her leave. I can't save her
I'll set my sights on destroying the world

And when I go just burn away my soul
Don't bother to replace my head with stone
And scatter the rest of me
With you

Brushing from your face
The darkness I found you in
It seems so light
Compared to what I found in you
Writing the night out in black and blue

(Close your eyes)
It's a simple glow
(Right hand down)
Separating us
(Right at the waistline)
Counting down the times
(Watch me drown)
That you have to try
Watch the ocean grab me again

And when I go just burn away my soul
Don't bother to replace my head with stone
And scatter the rest of me
