I'm at a wake
And drawing a geometric shape
You slept on the train
But I've been up for days

You look the same
But half dead and acting your age
I was embraced, asphyxiated
And taking on my shape

I feel like a sketch of a perfect circle
"Light still leaks in,"
A victim of hands gone idle
"Black rings in the water,"
An ever burning candle
"I wrote your name in the dust
Where the spirit was!"
A perfect ring of fire

All the ones you know you love
Go right back where they started from
All my gardens back to dust
Staring back up at the sun

"Please, please, please, please
Let me look away."

You look the same
But half dead and acting your age
I was embraced, asphyxiated
And taking on my shape

I feel like a sketch of a perfect circle
"Light still leaks in,"
A victim of hands gone idle
"Black rings in the water,"
An ever burning candle
"I wrote your name in the dust
Where the spirit was!"
A perfect ring of fire
