lyrics

I see a familiar face
Another chance to have some grace
New opportunity, new dawn
With as many shades as the setting sun
Dead soldiers in my squad
Died before they reached the warfront
Broken bonds, irreplaceable
Austere as a bleached cyclone

As the ivy grows, covering everything we know with poison
The confusions never lacking, always leaving without packing

The rain comes the rain goes
I'm still standing here all alone
Your mascaras running with time
Faster as you insert the knife
Stuck in reality that'll fade in time
Numbing dullness seeping in tonight

Throwing ourselves into decay
To combat the war on adolescent pain
Looking at people I used to know
Wondering how they became ghosts
Growing older in skin that seems to be shrinking
When the stitches start popping
Your still in your dress that you haven't changed
Since it was splattered with Kennedy's brains

Bleeding out wine and my flesh is bread
The savior who couldn't save himself
Because you like that style, you like it real
You like it rough because you don't know how to feel

The rain comes the rain goes
I'm still standing here all alone
Your mascaras running with time
Faster as you insert the knife
Stuck in reality that'll fade in time
Numbing dullness seeping in tonight
From the venomous retrospect surging again
And I'm still here
