The lights and sirens were silent and dark
When crept in a monstrous doubt.
We seek, we yearn, we know the truth
But we must never, ever shout.
There were things left unsaid
Like I shouldn’t have caught the stone
What was I supposed to do
When you decided to abdicate the throne?
Whispers are all it ever was
A scent that remained.
We came, we conquered, did our best
Yet everyone is slain.
A fragment of time in a window
Scenes of a life you never knew.
We all know that without nourishment
This love within us never grew.
Now we lick the aftermath
In twisted, fucked up heads.
What couldn’t possibly touch our hearts
Somehow ends up in our beds.
In a fit of anger one hasty night
He decides to walk away.
I shrug my shoulders, look around
I wasn’t really thinking he would stay.
