lyrics

say your prayers child
crave the running wild
the past is close behind
the cloth to veil your mind

I wanted more
your cradling warmth

demons hide under covers
a violence spills
(blood across your sheets)

the innocence of sin
visions spin
your biscuit skin
will save me now

sirens play out our numbers
which fall like rain
(on the cemetery floor)

this vigil it wears thin
close your eyes
or this dream might die
don’t make a sound

lost
in the wisdom of your thoughts
in the fortune of your lot
abandon all at once
abandon all

reflect
your own demise
reflect
beyond your lines

I wanted more
your cradling warmth

demons hide under covers
a violence spills
(blood across your sheets)

the innocence of sin
visions spin
your biscuit skin
will save me now

sirens play out our numbers
which fall like rain
(on the cemetery floor)

this vigil it wears thin
close your eyes
or this dream might die
don’t make a sound

(make it count
don’t make a sound)

the innocence of sin
visions spin
your biscuit skin
will save me now

sirens play out our numbers
which fall like rain
(on the cemetery floor)

this vigil it wears thin
close your eyes
or this dream might die
don’t make a sound

you’ll save me now
