I'll bite my nails down to the skin as i sketch and plan the artistry, use these wires as tapestry and turn the sky to ash and debris. Step by step with our boken knees while you gouge at your eyes so religiously and you'll never see how i stripped the wires for the first time. The glue in the sky can't hold the stars in place forever, they have to fall some time, so let's start a fire. Just get it over with and strike flint vs sulfer, as i watch you suffer, as the flames get taller and your life goes under.

I'll celebrate your ashes.
I'll TOAST TO THAT.
Celebrate your ashes.
I'll toast to that.

You're like the rest of them my darling.so empty this bottle and feel restored as your head hoards towards the floorboards. Isn't that what you deserve? after all we hadn't have a chance this autum. Our luck went out like the choices, and you chose to wave the gun towards me. What happened to 50/50. Since day one you've been a relentless headahce, but more than loyal through and through.(Thank god something snapped inside of you). You should know by now that i come prepared for circumstance like this so don't be surprised when the leaving intake valves causes this engine in flight to miss. Everything happens for a reason. But we happened to reason everything and ruin everything else. I'd do it again to know why you thought you could get away, when their still searching for fingerprints and evidence on the other 86, victims. Please, anyone, i'm dying for a new technique. Destroy the evidence. I can still hear the resonance. Take this knife away from me and use it to your benefit. I'll celebrete your ashes, I'll toast to that. You and I, perfect partners in crime but after trying to take my life, I owe you the favor. The engine dies, the captain cries. Your life before eyes. This is how i say goodbye. I set the sky on fire tonight.

    General CommentI'll bite my nails down to the skin.
    As I sketch and plan the artistry.
    Use these wires as tapestry.
    Turn the sky to ash and debris.
    Step by step with our broken knees.
    While you gouge at your eyes so religiously.
    And you'll never see how I stripped the wires for the first time.

    And held my breath for the last.
    [x2]

    I'll bite my nails down to the skin.
    As I sketch and plan the artistry.
    Use these wires as tapestry.
    Turn the sky to ash and debris.
    Step-by-step with our broken knees.
    As you gouge out your eyes so religiously.
    And you'll never see how I stripped the wires for the first time.


    The glue in the sky can't hold the stars in place forever.
    They have to fall some time, so let's start a fire.
    Just get it over with.
    And strike flint vs. sulfur.
    As I watch you suffer.
    As the flames get taller.
    And your life goes under.

    I'll celebrate your ashes.
    I’ll toast to that!
    [x2]

    You're just like the rest of them my darling.
    So empty this bottle and feel restored, as your head hoards towards the floorboards.
    Isn't that what you deserve?
    After all, we hadn't had a chance in Hell this Autumn.
    Our luck went out like the choices and you chose to wave the gun towards me.
    Whatever happened to 50/50?
    Since day one you've been a relentless headache, but more than loyal through and through.

    (thank God something snapped inside of you)

    You should know by now that I come prepared for a circumstance like this.
    So don't be surprised when the leaking intake valves cause this engine in-flight to miss.
    Everything happens for a reason.
    But we happened to reason everything and ruin everything else.
    And I'd do it again to know why you thought you could get away, when their still searching for fingerprints and evidence on the other 86 victims.
    Please, anyone, I'm dying for a new technique.

    Destroy the evidence.
    So I can still hear the resonance.
    Take this knife away from me and use it to your benefit.

    I'll celebrate your ashes.
    I'll toast to that!

    You and I.
    Perfect partners in crime.
    But after trying to take my life, I owe you the favor.

    The engine dies, captain cries.
    Your life before eyes.
    This is how I say goodbye.

    I set the sky on fire.
    I set the sky on fire tonight.
