Shadows lay across the ground like the dead
Waiting to rise and fulfill what they couldn’t live
And you can hear them in the whispers of the wind
Their words slowly decay just like the corpse that lies within the dirt

We’ll fiercely battle death for more time
When in our reflecting glass we stare a stranger in the eye
You see this penance for our sin has only drained us of our lives
But we move on

As I lay me down to sleep I pray that my soul is in good keeping
As I plunge into the deep I pray for a heaven to wake up in

As the echoes fade in a sea of sound, I pray that you’re listening
As the darkness falls swiftly all around, I pray someday you’ll find me
As the echoes fade in a sea of sound, I pray that you’re listening
As the darkness falls swiftly all around, I pray that you’ll see again

You keep your chest hollow to keep your mind fed
You’re skipping ‘cross graves, you’re dancing with the dead
You’re wearing thin and soon you’ll be gone
