"In Memory" as written by and T. S. Eliot Trevor Nunn....
Something that never dies
Speed never breaks
It sticks into your skin
It drips across your face
It speaks to me
Telling me you’re terrified
Of this disease
Cuz you look so weak
That you’re slipping through your body
And tearing through me

These are your last words
I’m sorry
Right before my eyes
Carefully assist your bones
The blood is in your eyes
Look at me for the last time

So when she bites your eyes
I fill with apathy
Be careful with your words
Save your energy
Speak to me
The time’s so terrified
What’s happening?
Be strong for me
Cuz it’s so easy to die when it’s so hard to breathe
To save your suffering
Oh my god I think it’s killing me

These are your last words
I’m sorry
Right before my eyes
Carefully assist your bones
If this is the last time I’ll ever be so terrified

    General CommentCD VERSION:

    this feeling never dies
    the fever never breaks
    it shakes under your skin
    and drips across your face

    it speaks to me
    telling me you're terrified
    of this disease
    cause you look so weak
    as it's ripping through your body
    it's tearing through me

    if these are your last words
    i'm sorry
    right before my eyes
    I can't believe
    this is goodbye
    keep staring right into my eyes
    and look at me for the last time

    so empty but your eyes are filled with apathy
    be careful with your words
    to save your energy
    speak to me
    cause I'm so terrified
    of what's happening

    so be strong for me
    cause it's so easy to die
    when it's so hard to breathe
    to see you suffering
    oh my god I think it's killing me

    if these are your last words
    I'm sorry
    right before my eyes
    I can't believe
    this is goodbye

    if this is the last time
    I've never been so terrified
    if this is the last time
    I'll never look in your eyes
