So this is my last transmission the words that will soon fall to dust no I won’t be home on this day and in these fists was held questions unanswered and it’s killing me chamber clicks pin breaks the shell kiss of black on our lips lungs breaking so cave in don’t forget these words spoken in sequence won’t be our last plain wrapped brown package (placed in our arms) tied up with string explodes while scanning horizon feel skin get numb as begins the fall all waking up on the day before we were handed the open book when hands fell from mid face to block our eyes from seeing more fingers make a picket fence holding what we know fading slowly from our eyes to white lights this was all climbing up the misplaced spires in our hopes they would find us wait it out drop the satellites for just tonight give it up

    General CommentOne of my favorite anatomy of a ghost songs. I just got back from the Beautiful Mistake...Emery...Anatomy of a Ghost... and AKAs show, it was quite great, but AOAG played more of theyre newer stuff, which is a lot different from the songs on evanesce, namely this song.

    General Commenthere ya go...

    So this is my last transmission, the words that soon fall to the dust
    And no I won’t be home, on this day and in these fists was held
    Questions unanswered, and it is killing me, it is killing me
    Kiss of black on our lips lungs breaking so cave in
    And forget these words spoken in sequence won’t be our last
    Plain wrapped brown package placed in our arms
    Tied up with string, explodes while scanning horizons
    Feel skin get numb as the words begin to fall, all begins to fall
    We woke up on the day before we were handed the open book
    Chamber clicks and the pin breaks the shell
    When these hands fell from sore to block our eyes from seeing more
    Fingers making a picket fence hiding from what we know
    Fading slowly into white light… this was all, this was ours, and this was all
    Kiss of black on our lips lungs breaking so cave in
    And forget these words spoken in sequence
    Plain wrapped brown package placed in our arms
    Tied up with string, explodes while scanning horizons
    Feel skin get numb as the words begin to fall, all begins to fall
    Way to go, wait it out, it won’t be long
    Climbing up these misplaced spires in our hopes they would find us
    Wait it out and drop satellites, just tonight, give it up
    This was all, this was ours, and this was all ours
    Kiss of black on our lips lungs breaking so cave in
    And forget these words spoken in sequence won’t be our last
    Plain wrapped brown package placed in our arms
    Tied up with string, explodes while scanning horizons
    Feel skin get numb as the words begin to fall, all begins to fall
    Plain wrapped brown package placed in our arms
    Tied up with string, explodes while scanning horizons
    Feel skin get numb as the words begin to fall, all begins to fall
    Tear the clouds bring on the rain watching faces fall
    Every day letting it worsen they’ll never learn
    Knew we knew just not enough
    So now back to the present found at the tops
    Of the rock walls where the spires climb
    So tall the wheat fields, so tall the wheat fields
    Growing up too much, the importance of fate, of faith
    The head bumps ahead bleeding from burning sun
    Lungs breaking so cave in, lungs breaking so cave in
    Lungs breaking so cave in, lungs breaking so cave in
    Lungs breaking so, lungs breaking so cave in
    Lungs breaking so, lungs breaking so cave in
    Lungs breaking so cave in, so cave in
