I traced your shape and counted the days and you just erased me
I hit the ground and I made no sound as your heels pierced me
I scarred my face to conquer my pride and you cocooned in your misery
I plucked you up from a bed of nails and you hung me for your salvation
Can I come down?
There's been a mistake
Can I come down?
Isn't this what you asked of me?
You lost faith
Blinding white
And just before my chest caved in, I climbed back down
I caught your scent but the wolves beat me to you
Stopped behind the place where we met
Found strands of your dress they were all that was left
I dug you up the night you died and this is what you asked me, "when will the sun overthrow the eclipse?”
I'm just waiting for this night to end
Leave me here, just go
As the dusk set in, as the sickness spread, I took one glance behind and you had disappeared
As the dusk set in, as the sickness spread, I took one glance behind and you had disappeared
Slipping right through my fingers
Gripping as tight as I can
Slipping right through my hands
We can't look back
They've got the searchlights on us
We can’t look back
Stay close, you'll be alright
With shadows as my guide
I'm searching for the answer
I will be the one who breaks this constant midnight
Tossed to the swine
I make the climb from the abyss
Lost
Into the night
To the abyss
I trace your shape to memory
I traced your shape
Eraser.
