Well the science
That's put us into power
Is just daydreams
And pale imitation

And we can gather the remains and clean the fancy knives
We'll throw away the bones and lick our fingers dry
As the mountains and the forests crumble to the ground
And the ashes and the embers linger all around
It's better not to be here when the fire starts
With lions all around you with their beating hearts
Pounding blood into their veins so they can chase you down
As the mountains and the forests crumble to the ground

Will you cry
When nobody would answer?
Now they're gone
And left nothing behind

When the lights begin to flicker and the candles die
When the fireplace is empty and our bodies lie
In the bedroom by the staircase with the painted walls
We can dream of all the ghosts that roam these shadowed halls
On the mattress we can listen through the haunted sounds
In the attic where the footsteps that go all around
We can sleep until the sunrise meets our tired eyes
And the lights will start to flicker while the candles die
