lyrics

Colours seen different to me
Your vision is bled with grey
No markings adorn this grave
Just shallow dirt above my face

In the belly of the beast
Whisper your name, I could have screamed
Perception is arbitrary
In afterlife I await sleep

Can I crawl back in, just forgive these sins
I swear I'm willing, ignore this heartbeat
Can I crawl back in, just forget these sins
I swear I'm willing, ignore this heartbeat

I won't let you down again

What unlocks a person from a cage of bones?
What defines the shape and texture of their thoughts?

How could you say its what you want
If you believed then you'd still be here with me

All things take time and time takes all things
Something permanent is what evades us all
All things take time and time takes all things
Something permanent is what betrays us all

Tell me what you see when you think of me
Don't be shy, just close your eyes and speak
Tell me how can you breathe when you think of me
Love you'll never hide from this memory

Please just come home, say you'll come home

Annabelle where are you, please just come home
And the bell it tolls, at the seventh I'm coming home
