The knife plunges deeper between the ribs.
Grasping, slipping, the life bleeds out between my fingertips...
This heart won't beat another.
And the swelling of my lungs
Won't hurt as much as i love you.

Come follow me down the path that's led you here.
Kerosene and chloroform.
I whisper in your ear, take your last breath.
As this night swallows you whole
All we had was time.
(stitching my heart back together
with broken glass.
wont be enough to mend this
mend these wounds.)

I've got this match, steady flow of gasoline.
As all these thoughts and dreams start to come true.
I'll gold these flames in my heart.
With a thousand wasted nights.

This gasoline seems to make your eyes shine,
This life was never there before.
And you can breathe the smoke from this blackened skin
While i exhale the truth.
Fight these words that seal your fate.

The gasoline seems to make your eyes shine,
A life that was never there before.
Grit your teeth and hold your breath.
This match will strike and won't keep me up nights.
Fight this match and feed this fire.

Gasoline seems to make you eyes shine,
A shine that was never there before.
And i swear - you can breathe this gasoline.
You're screaming - "Hold me down." "Hold my hand now."

And i swear to God your eyes have never burned,
You tear through me.
Like this stream of gas and flames trailed to my heart
Like a thousand wasted nights.
Hold these flames
And you can breathe the smoke from this blackened skin.
I'll remember the day the skies opened up.

Stars are out.
The brightest one has fallen.
Down to me.
The first seen - has been struck down.
Hold my hand and i will take you through this
As you rise from coal.

Follow me down the path that's led you here.
Choke on this chloroform.
Hide these thoughts, hold this fire.
The scent of burning flesh won't keep me up nights.
