I wanted to see Mars tonight
But settled instead for your rain streaked windshield
I opened up the sunroof to let the rain come in
To mask my tears

And she said: "I’m sorry, I didn’t mean to hurt you"
I nod and smile.
I have nothing to say
Silence fills there air
A tear runs down her cheek
And I’ll die tonight

So I left you with my heart in my hands
And sorrow in my chest
Came home and stripped turned off all the lights
Filled the water in the tub
A smile, a cut, a flash I’m gone.

Close my eyes and slip away forever.

You did this to me
You might as well have held the knife
Or sucked the last of my breath from my dying lips.
And as my body grows cold, hold me tight and steal my soul
And lock it away with the note in front of the mirror that held my last smile
Before I took my life
And all it said was "when you fall scream all the way down"
It ends not with a whimper but with a scream a cry a slamming door
A gunshot wound a bleeding heart
This is what love will do to you all

    General Commentit's kind of shocking to me that the nightmare scenario never really went anywhere...i saw them a couple times back in...like...2000 or 2001(maybe?) and they tore $hit up. their first EP and this album were both awesome, and then they just kind of disappeared.
