lyrics

Dance To The Death

You break me wide open, you fill in my cracks
You left your stamp in me like a child's footprints
In dry cement, that she made when no one was looking and it was wet
I sang your song just to myself
As the cities burned and I rode to the south
With the silence of the highway where no one can hear me anymore

I need you tonight in the ash and the grey
Where the sun is a stranger and ten years is a day
Come find me tonight by the cross on the hill
And we'll dance to the death of the world

I set the fire and you lit the match
The generators blew and we stood there to catch
The ashes falling like snowflakes as the Rapture spread
The great towers fell just like we always planned
The smokestacks burned and the streets turned to sand
Then I looked into the darkness and you were gone

-Chorus-

I searched the ruins, found a scrap of your vest
I stayed there for days but there was nothing else left
Oh, it's everything we dreamed but it's no fun without you
There's a void in my heart that cannot be filled
There's a demon inside me that cannot be killed
By anyone but you

-Chorus-

Now there are times when I'm alone at night
When salvation flies like a moth to the light
And burns itself to death in protest at being had
