  • We were walking in a circle, hand in hand
    And your feet were sinking deeper in the sand than mine
    You had sold me the mansion in your head
    I would cut your hair and you would dye it red as fire
    As a crackling fire

    And I would hold the phone
    So you were not alone
    I had to take you home, you couldn't even drive

    You had smiled when you told me you were brave
    And that your life was in other hands to save, not mine
    I saw the mansion you had made me love ignite
    And as you were fading, it was growing bright with fire
    With a crackling fire

    And when you tried to stand
    You had to take my hand
    You said "I think your plan will be splitting from mine"

    We made a pile of all your remaining clothes
    Where you’re heading now you won’t be needing those, it’s fine
    We soaked the pile till it dripped with gasoline
    And then I lit a match as if I’d never seen a fire, fire, fire
    It was a big roaring fire

    And your heart beat failed
    And it stopped leaving its trails
    But the last thing you exhaled while you were alive was

    I am alright
    I am alright
    I am alright
    I am alright
    I am alright
    I am alright
    And I'm doing just fine
    I am alright
    I am alright
    I am alright
    I am alright
    I am alright
    I am alright
    And I'm doing just fine
    Yeah
