The moment I saw you You terrorized the lands Crashed through my body Earthquaked my limbs Did you say that I could see you In the time where the world began In a haze of atomic fury Will I find you once again? I will chase your light I will chase your light Into a dream Into a dream You're the loudest emptiness I've seen The earth was bruised with a flash of violence The apocalypse grows blue with oceans Cover me me in a bouquet of violets I build you into everything I build you into everything My head is filled with falling leaves You choose your love so you choose your loss You choose your love so you choose your loss Did you say that I could meet you In the time when the world will end If I find a way to love you Will you leave me once again

Is it the acid rain that'll do me in or the lover done gone away You always sew me up as I break you open till we finally look the same Where all your sights go Where all your sounds go I wanna live again I wanna live again You lead me in with tongues of fire till I bathe in your cool skin You flower the waters with your many departures I forget the place I'm in Where all your sights go Where all your sounds go I wanna live again I wanna live again I wanna live again I wanna live again I wanna live again I wanna live again

Hard times up ahead The wolves are at the foot of my bed Smiling, blood in their teeth Will they leave us where we lie tonight Will they leave us where we lie tonight Dream in a blinding white That burns like fire in the night I'm lifted like a cloud in the sky Hard times up ahead I'll send the wolves instead Laughing, blood in their teeth Will they leave us where we lie tonight Will they leave us where we lie tonight Dream in a blinding white That burns like a fire in the night I'm lifted like a cloud in the sky

If they're waiting for me white with teeth They'll find me in a whiter sleep My grandsons left me feathers in the wind Overcome by the fires that our fathers dreamed And I see ashes in the wake Turning blue waters grey There was lightning in the eyes that let my head rest in flames I held her in a dying light Every surface trembled toward the night My lover she has built for us a home Made of hailstorms and rivers filled with flowers and bone And I see blood on her head turning blue waters red Every time I love her the air gets filled with lead My lover she is whispers in the breeze Filled with landslides and fury turning colors in the leaves And I'm a trembling in her gaze Making blue water rain It was enough to make her love me not enough to make her stay

Won't believe the shit I'm in I'm a million pretty sins All I've got is a way down All I've got is a way down Spent my money spent my youth Don't mean I'll stop loving you All I've got is a way down All I've got is a way down You're every choice I have to choose And I'm in love with the abuse All I've got is a way down All I've got is a way down

I've got a bad case I've got the freedoms Won't you tie me down Won't you tie me down I've got the short sights lit up with black lights Won't you tie me down Won't you tie me down I want the hold tights to keep me up nights I want the ruins I want the ruins I wanna drown with you in the sea of our hands I wanna drown with you in the sea of our hands I've many fathers still under water I've got the hollows I've got the hollows I'm on a fast track to let the bleed last I wanna let it out I'm gonna let it out I want your forthrights I want your red lights I want your ruins I want your ruins I wanna drown with you in the sea of our hands I wanna drown with you in the sea of our hands I wanna drown with you in the sea of our hands I wanna drown with you in the sea of our hands I've got a fistful of lonesome devils I've got the freedoms I've got the freedoms I've got no nature Learned how to miss her I want the ruins I want the ruins I want the ruins I want the ruins I wanna drown with you in the sea of our hands I wanna drown with you in the sea of our hands I wanna drown with you in the sea of our hands I wanna drown with you in the sea of our hands I'm in a bad place I'm not ok I've got the hollows I've got the hollows I want the hold tights to keep me up nights I want the ruins I want the ruins

Took a long just to ask your name Takes a long time to forget your face death and hell-fire's all I thought that day Bed of roses for my aching head Lovely violence in the words you said I'll kiss you until you're a ghost instead A home in the night A home in the sun A home when the war is done Are you either one Tie your strands of time around my limbs Don't you stop until they're white with death Kiss me darling till there's nothing left Lovely violence in my bed again Your lips they judge me as they cut my neck The crowd starts laughing once their king is dead Away in the night Away in the sun Can I see you when the war is done Am I anyone Love to miss you when the trees undress Dressed to kill me when you look your best Lovely violence, will you take no less Took a long time just to ask your name Reign on terror filled with burning stakes Takes a long time to forget your face

Ashes of God Caked Kings blood City in ruins Euphoria flood Felt someone love me In the nuclear moonlight We hid under a white glow And washed the atoms away Washed the atoms away Washed the atoms away Washed the atoms away Remember the year We ran out of world The spirits of history Spoke their last words Hid from the shadows In the nuclear moonlight Will you lay down beside me And wash the atoms away Wash the atoms away Wash the atoms away Wash the atoms away

Let me rest darling Let me stay with you for a while I will go home tonight I know My bed's got sharper teeth than it shows So let me stay Let me stay with you for a while Let me rest Let me pick at the bones of your breath Cover my eyes chase me into the trees Of the gardens where you take your sleep Let me stay Let me stay with you for a while I will go home I will go home To the reptilian walls of my room To the shadows that cover my wounds So let me stay Let me lie, darling, in the leaves that fall from your eyes I'll decompose with them if you give me enough of your time
