Everything change & we'll all change again
Sun sheds the light as the life sheds its skin.
You kiss your wish to the heart of the world
Secrets are safe with, will not break the spell

Come on, lets go home.
Buried in your womb.
Sing a song of death,
Til' there's none left

Love comes close
But chooses to spare me
Death comes close
But ceases to take me
I want to twist, the knife a bit deeper
To siphon the love from the hearts I believed in
Look outside, world is exploding,
Stay inside, still never knowing.
Taking cover, with each other,
Sleeping off the century of hope.

Everydays changing will remain the same.
Silhouettes shy as rain rots the drain.
Everydays decay debases the dream,
The ghosts that will haunt you are not what they seem.
Still you say you're dead
To deprevity,
But that can't be true, 'cause I know you can hear me.

Love comes close
But chooses to spare me
Death comes close
But ceases to take me
I want to twist, the knife a bit deeper
To siphon the love from the hearts I believed in.
Look outside, world is exploding,
Stay inside, still never knowing.
Taking cover, with each other,
Sleeping off the century of hope.

Love comes close
But chooses to spare me
Death comes close
But ceases to take me
I want to twist, the knife a bit deeper
To siphon the love from the hearts I believed in.
Look outside, world is exploding,
Stay inside, still never knowing.
Taking cover, with each other,
Sleeping off the century of hope.

    General CommentNew to this website but I thought I would post the actual lyrics for everyone

    Everything changing will unchange again
    Sun sheds the light as the life sheds the skin
    You kiss your wish to the heart of the world
    The secrets you sleep with will not break the spell

    Come on lets go home
    Buried in your room
    Sing a song of death
    Til there's no one left

    Love comes close
    But chooses to spare me
    Death comes close
    But ceases to take me
    I want to twist the knife a bit deeper
    To siphon the love from the hearts I believed in

    Look outside
    World is exploding
    Stay inside
    So never knowing
    Taking cover
    With each other
    Sleeping off a century of hope

    Every days changing to remain the same
    Silhouettes shy as the rain runs the drain
    Everydays decay debases the dream
    The ghosts that will haunt you are not what they seem

    Still you say your deaf
    To depravity
    But that can't be true
    Cause I know you can hear me

    General Comment"Love comes close
    But Zeus to spare me

    General Commenthaha its not zeus. have you heard the song?

    love comes close but chooses to spare me
    *something* comes close but ceases to take me

    something= either love again or he says death or i don't know. penis.

    General Commentmy friend and i think that part, "single song of death" is "sing a song of death."

    and that part where he's like, "still you say you're done", sounds to me like he says, "still you say you're dead, to deprevity but that can't be true..."

    thats what i THINK though, the other parts you got down pretty nicely.

    General Commentits probably getting annoying i keep commenting for corrections but fuck you.

    i listened to this song right now and where he says, "to siphon the hearts of the leaves and" sounds to me like he says "to siphon the hearts of the weekends(or the weakened)"

    alright i'm done.

    General CommentNo need to be rude,
    It's not annoying, obviously I'd prefer the lyrics to be right.
    Feel free to submit some other songs for Cold Cave.

    General Commentsorrrrry but last edit i swear.

    love comes close but chooses to spare me
    DEATH comes close but ceases to take me.

    i was on the cold cave myspace and they had alt. cover art that had that part, 'death comes close'.
