When the fire is over
We'll turn on the lights
And run our finger through ashes

We'll gather arround
The last bright ember
Until it too leaves us for the night

We'll save what's not gone
We'll long for what is
And slowly we'll forget the last few thousands days
I am sane,
don't ask again
Dig your own hole,
fill it with rain

Silence falls when I'm left alone with myself
Silent songs
Sinng from the shelf

I better hold my aim
The sun may shine another day
Let it go don't let it reign
Or every day will feel the same

I better hold my aim
Or I won't get another day
Everybody's just the same
Let it go don't let it reign

I am fine,
don't ask again
In my hole,
feeling the rain

Silence stayed, and I'm face to face with myself
Silent songs
Fly from the shelf

I better hold my aim
The sun will rise now any day
And everything may stay the same
I don't care I'll let it reign

I better hold my aim
The sun will shine a thousand days
There are no rules to this game
Don't let it go, let it reign
Open your eyes and fall in line
It's time to stand up against Time
It's time to get out of your mind
It's time to show them you're alive

And hear whatever's new to hear
And work on making the world clear
To find out there's nothing to fear
That everything will disappear

And out diseases start to creep
As memories begin to weep
Blank sheets are where fantasies sleep
Your stains are just making them cheap

And you'll keep wading through that stream
As the sun lets out its last beam
And you will let out so much steam
As you dive into the next dream
Some machine eye is watching me
Dots in the rain, no one to see
Witnesses things, can't focus none
Grabbed at my skin but my soul's gone

Electric sight and steely gaze
Captured my face for unknown eyes
Deep behind iron irises
A few million roads set ablaze

This machine eye keeps watching me
Looks in a way nobody does
Prints out all the air that touched me
Knows every pattern I'd compose

Electric sight and steely gaze
Sees through me hiding in this maze
From under iron irises
It couldn't care less where it is

And machine eyes keep watching me
Accounting on my sketchy ways
Gathering lines from my body
Draws perfect pictures as always

Electric sight and steely gaze
Bolted in an eternal daze
Before their iron irises
Watch as another day rises

Please machine eyes keep watching me
For not from you I'd like to flee
Remember that I once was there
While you stay staring through the air
I see their arms in the air
All the way down the road to sanctuary
I hear voices that tried to care
Amid sighs that held on for centuries

So tell me again, is this the end ?
'Cause I see their arms in the air
And I feel back home again

The signs are all around the road
It's lighten up written in bold why can't you see ?
Your veil, it really never moved, did it ?
It's a wonder how you can see at all

But please tell me again, is this the end ?
Now I hear their voice in the rain
And I feel back home again

Now, it's time to pack our bags, you see
Life is meant to be spent on the run
But no, I don't think you're coming with me
Either you follow me or you die here

I know exactly where I am
And I think you know who brought me here
And I see your arms in the air
And I just feel whole again
Drink a glass of water, take a shower, step outside
Don't get lost in your thoughts again
Cook yourself something, read a book and have a shave
Don't get lost in your thoughts again
Answer your friends' texts, clean your room and do your bed
Don't get lost in your thoughts again
Start writing a song and don't bother to have it rhyme
Don't get lost in your thoughts again

You want to get away from here
There's thing from which you should stay clear
You'll run away and disappear
You want to get away from here

I don't remember which way's home
I can't believe you're that far gone
You thought I would just stay back here
I turn around and down the hill your run

Let the wind run trough your hair
Dig trenches in your head
You know the way, down the hill you run
While this wholesome world flies around the sun

And the sun, now, it's in my eyes, now
And your eyes
Will never see the day now
It's too late, no
It's too bad
How things leave when you look away
Now
I won't go
No
In your cave to speak wth you

You want to get away from here
You want to get away from here
You'll run away and disappear
You want to get away from here
They wander off before my eyes, listening around
They march onward, staunch, cold as ice, blinded by the sounds
They charged through every battlefield, never picked a side
Contempt is all that waits for them, around these fading flags

And when the world is dead to them, fallen in disgrace
The blood of those who hide their word's running down their face
As everyone just walks right through what they're standing for
Away from all that can be true, and what was there before

They know, they know, but at least the world,
They know, their way around it they know,
Their way around, they know
But at least the world is changing
But at least the world, is changing

They wander in behind my eyes, observing around
They fly away then each come back, ten times before noon
They'll, tear down every wall you build, it's what they live for
And then nothing will ever be as it was before

And when the world is dead to them, fallen in disgrace
The blood of those who hide their words, will run down their face
And then the people of the norm will hold onto their pace
Away from all I thought was true, and all I'm living for
