lyrics

I ran away from you
because I saw the cold and tired in your eyes
fortify, your abyss befalls light
dream tonight, out inside

I slipped away and flew
to a place I thought I knew
strange sound, puppeteers
dance to the sounds of days spent in fear

Black and blue
and in for me, but not for you

Taste it now, your lips brown
and skin wrinkled with stains of wasted frowns
you stray tonight
you wear your crown of black and blue
and in for me, but not for you

If it's in a word I will shout
forget the hurt I'm talking about
and when you cry, will I be there?
Dreaming scape of canvas paint
I've lost my way

Worn a robe of your tears
as I've collected throughout the years
lies your name, it burns and sears
in my room, souvenir

Remember me as I am,
list the things in demand
crucifix on my mouth
and x's in my iris
that's it, at my best
the bests are written when I'm dead

Black and blue
and in for me but not for you
if it's in a word I will shout
forget the hurt I'm talking about
and when you cry, will I be there?
Dreaming scape of canvas paint

I've lost my way... (4x)
