Its just red and white
Get a little older
And thats alright
Seven years cold out by the side
Brought you some flowers
And every day gets longer

I guess you might get a little quieter
and thats alright
Still I keep holding on to you
Bleach scarred honey there, sleeping pills aren't strong

In the walls of my back
To reconcile with the lights out
Falling down the lighthouse
Still I found your little toy soldier
Buried under

Its a heavy old lie
Ceremony break down everytime
Bells keep ringing out loud and rhyme
Hearts beats faster, every breathe gets stronger

I CANT rewind
even move forward
thats alright
still i keep holding onto you
Bleach scarred honey there, sleeping pills aren't strong


In the walls of my back
To reconcile with the lights out
Falling down the lighthouse
Still I found your little toy soldier
Buried under

I said a lie
It's a slow burn
Bury me

keep a lie
and keeps secrets
Buried beneath

In the walls of my back
To reconcile with the lights out
Falling down the lighthouse
Still I found your little toy soldier
Buried under

    Song MeaningI don't feel like figuring out the rest of the song, but something that jumped out to me is

    "Falling down the lighthouse
    Still I found your little toy soldier
    Buried under"

    The singer is finding himself (after a breakdown - "falling down the lighthouse"), and coming to grips with the fact that he lied to, presumably, his girlfriend.

    Which connects with

    "Its a heavy old lie
    Ceremony break down everytime
    Bells keep ringing out loud and rhyme
    Hearts beats faster, every breathe gets stronger"

    His lie was told some time ago, and, like with the falling down the lighthouse, the ceremony break down is just a breakdown.
    "Bells keep ringing out loud and rhyme"
    The guy could be a schizophrenic, and bells are the voices in his head, reminding him of his lie.
    "Hearts beat faster, every breath gets stronger"
    Some of his different voices are getting more worried and panicked, including his real voice.

    That's it. May do the rest later. May not.
    Great song.
