lyrics

I follow the sound
As it winds through the floor
And empties into the room below

Where the portraits are painted
In echo and rumor
I tighten the blindfold
To soften the fall

And you
You won’t change
You’ll never let it go
Until the grave is named

And you
You can’t see
That my armor is a cage
And even though I try
The dragon slays me

You’re so cold
Like blood from stone

I follow the sound
As it winds through the floor
And empties into the room below

Where I sit at the table
And stare out the window
I try to understand
Why I make it so hard

I’ve moved
Out of range
My life has missed the mark
A bullet gone astray

I flew out to sea
Where my colors have dissolved
In a tattered free fall
And I can’t save me


You’re so cold
Like blood from stone

I follow the sound
As it winds through the floor
And empties into the room below

Where the moment turned fatal
Seconds lead to forever
But what happened next
I can’t recall

And you
You won’t change
You’ll never let it go
Until the bomb is named

And you
You don’t see
That my armor is a cage
And even though I try
The dragon slays me

You’re so cold
Like blood from stone
