lyrics

Tell me, how can you bear it? How can you bear all of this pain
That you put yourself through, day after day, again and again

You hold yourself up to the flames, until there's nothing to hold
You are covered in ashes, while your red, red blood is running cold
In broken vessels that you hide away from me
But I'm not blind and you're poorly disguised
While you're tumbling at full speed towards the day you'll die

It's not my sermon to give and yet I can't not preach
Your joy lies in colours and music, but where will they go when you leave?
Have you picked a dress for your funeral yet, a last song to be played?
Is the table for all of your mourning guests set? Are you angry? Do you feel betrayed?

You spin away with no center
Out of control, you're caught in a tremor
Forever

Unless you find a way to break these circles that never end
You're not alone, I'm just like you and I hope to god you can ascend
From those depths to which you sank and where no light can be
Let the currents pull you up so you can rise above the sea

...but you spin away
