lyrics

A glowing candle held,
up to a burnt out face
Your shadow dances across the bricks and swells
Then disappears without a trace.

Within a faded room,
a million scenes played out.
A thousand breaths that never calmed your nerves,
Conspire to blow each candle out

Scrawl our names in the walls that our fathers made,
Scream down the empty halls and hear the echoes fade.
We learn to hide ourselves from the roles we've played.
Hoist your head into the light, for every memory you made

In a house transformed,
by disappearing days,
We etch the stories we want read to us,
but night just steals them all away.

Each fire we start in vein,
the flames all choked by the air
To live like this or search for brighter days
then struggle trying to get us there.

Scrawl our names in the walls that our fathers made,
Shout through the empty halls and hear the echoes fade.
We learn to hide ourselves from the roles we've played.
Hoist your head into the light, for every memory you made

Within a faded room,
a million scenes played out.
A thousand breaths that never calmed your nervers,
Conspire to kill the light with doubt
