Coming down, and halfway home
I knew I could count on you
To cut me free from these sympathies
I got myself into
What is left to burn?
Our lives are shadows from a light dancing on your bedroom walls
All these years have just passed us by
Just waiting for tonight
Way down in the back of my head
I swear I can still hear you
Calling me but you're in too deep and I
I cut myself in two
She is my black earth tiger
I am her only son
She sings like
The ends will start to fray
When predator and prey
Are exactly the same thing
So here's to that fine day
When your white flag starts to wave
Signalling your end

    General Commentwow, theres no comments on this song

    it's so simple yet so beautiful

    i go to bed every night to this song

    and he screams perfectly at the very end

    gives me chills
