  • Bodies littering the streets
    Hear the sadness filter through the trees
    Makes its way into our lungs and in our dreams
    You can bottle up our voice
    Sealed and labeled with a made up choice
    Sell it on an on until we bleed

    Feed the fire
    Until there’s nothing left to burn
    Except ourselves
    Except ourselves
    Nothing left to burn
    Except ourselves
    Except ourselves
    Nothing left to burn

    Buildings rise
    Emptying our eyes
    Take a number get in line
    In this prison we’ve designed
    I see the man
    Dying in the spotlight
    Carving out his heart
    Blood on his guitar

    Feed the fire
    Until there’s nothing left to burn
    Except ourselves

    We burry ourselves
    Under so much formality
    Now we dance around each other
    Careful not to breathe

    We’re hiding in the air
    In between the rain
    Falling with the leaves
    Dying where we lay
    We are the ghosts of who were
    Passing through these walls
    Haunting our own hearts
    Dead to one and all

    We’re hiding in the air
    In between the rain
    Falling with the leaves
    Dying where we lay
    We are the ghosts of who we were
    Passing through these walls
    Haunting our own hearts
    Dead to one and all

    We’re hiding in the air
    In between the rain
    Falling with the leaves
    Dying where we lay
    We are the ghosts of who we were
    Passing through these walls
    Haunting our own hearts
    Dead to one and all

    We’re hiding in the air
    In between the rain
    Falling with the leaves
    Dying where we lay
    The ghosts of who we were
    Passing through these walls
    Haunting our own hearts

    We are the ghosts of who we were
