You are everything everyone wanted you to be
Now it's time for closure
So I hand you your own eyes back so you can see
That a whore is priceless in a mind that we erased
Peel back new skin
You can still save face

In vain I will lead you to this blade and show you the way
But in my heart and with this love
I refuse to let you die today
Lay us to rest in your red river
You will drown in shame
You can not see that you are the water not the victim
It is victims that you claim

Hold on wait for the moment
Capture it and never let it go
A last chance for understanding
But I will not let it show
I held on and waited for
What was never mine, and never yours

I brought flowers to decorate your funeral
But they just died alone with me in the car
And I never made it out alive my love
This etched blade with our names has created two scars

Spread our wings and through heavens we fly
We are forever our love will never die
We were once divided
But now we see as one again
Your restless soul will not sleep
Until it's released of memories of me

Hold on wait for the moment
Capture it and never let it go
A last chance for understanding
But I will not let it show
I held on and waited for
What was never mine, and never yours

As we aspired to be more
Your love remained a revolving door
And as we proceeded, I gave you all you needed
But in your eyes the sky was falling
This door no longer revolving
A last chance for understanding
Hand in hand we wrote this ending

In vain, you can
Faceless love
With masks that we wear proudly
Removing them to see what we want to see
We are comforted by small talk and sweet kisses
Isn't love bliss?

Hold on wait for the moment
Capture it and never let it go
A last chance for understanding
But I will not let it show
I held on and waited for
What was never mine, and never yours
Hold on wait for the moment

    General CommentThis song is amazing. Best on the album i think.

    I think this song is about love, and its (possible) extremely negative nature. It seems that while one person is working towards love, the other couldn't care less and has ended up selfishly killing themself. (this could be taken either literally or metaphorically)
    In turn, the other persona has also taken their own life. (again, actually died, or given up the person they are)
    The end of the song is explaining why the events played out like they did.

    "As we aspired to be more
    Your love remained a revolving door
    And as we proceeded, I gave you all you needed
    But in your eyes the sky was falling
    This door no longer revolving"

    While one person was working for it, the other was being selfish and lived for themselves, giving up the love that was built.
    The ironic comment
    "Isn't love bliss?"
    Is meant to draw the song to a climax, and emphasise the fact that love is often not bliss.

    The chorus is about making the most of what you're given, and saying that you need to cherish the moment (and each other) to make things work.
